The Sam Fox Art Center project led by McCarthy's higher education construction team includes a three-story, 67,000-sf Kemper Art Museum, central plant, library, office space and art storage and a three-story, 34,000-sf sculpture and painting studios, shop areas and outdoor working court.
World-renowned Pritzker Prize-winning Japanese architect Fumuhiko Maki teamed up with Shah Kawasaki Associates from California to design the building. They brought together the Schools of Architecture and Art and the Departments of Art History and Archaeology and its Gallery of Art and Architecture Library.
The architectural features include limestone buildings with metal panel areas and numerous skylights. The design of the buildings had to have the same look and feel of nearby Bixby Hall, Givens Hall and Steinberg Hall built in 1928, 1930 and 1960 respectively.
With construction work spanning over 200 projects across more than 40 campuses, it's easy to see why McCarthy is one of the national leaders in higher education construction. Our work spans a variety of complex building types, from classrooms and laboratories, to libraries and student housing construction. To learn more about our work, contact us today.
