To transform an industrial building into a museum space has been one of the main challenges that Bombas Gens project had to face. A quite complex goal that the head of the museum project, the prestigious architect Annabelle Selldorf, has successfully overcome.
Annabelle Selldorf is the Principal of Selldorf Architects. Born and raised in Germany, she received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Pratt Institute and a Master of Architecture degree from Syracuse University in Florence, Italy. She is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and serves on the Board of the Architectural League of New York, the Chinati Foundation, and the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College. In 2017, Ms. Selldorf was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters, three years after receiving the organization’s prestigious Award in Architecture. In 2016 she received the AIA New York Medal of Honor.
Selldorf Architects’ clients include cultural institutions and universities such as the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, The Clark Art Institute, Neue Galerie New York, and Brown University.
Last year, Selldorf Architects was selected among the best studios in the world to design the renovation of The Frick Collection (New York)
