Attendees will get a behind the scenes look at the construction of the monumental polished tilt-up panels making up the Saint Louis Art Museum's new building.
The Saint Louis Art Museum, Located in Forest Park in Saint Louis, Missouri, is situated atop Art Hill overlooking the Grand Basin, the central gathering place for the 1904 World's Fair. Designed by renowned American architect Cass Gilbert, the Saint Louis Art Museum's original structure was the only building from the World’s Fair designed to be permanent. The 200,000 square foot addition, designed by London architect David Chipperfield, consists of large, clean expanses of glass and monumental planes of highly polished black concrete. The stark contrast created by the simplicity and darkness of the expansion keeps clean the reading of the original building and establishes a somewhat submissive attitude while sustaining its own sense of monumentality.
