Opening Fall 2015: The McMurtry Building

Diller Scofidio + Renfro, along with the executive architect, Portland, OR-based Boora Architects, has designed not only a new home for the Department of Art and Art History but an interdisciplinary hub for the arts at Stanford that will foster interaction and collaboration among students and faculty, and support the integration of the arts into university life.

Housed within 96,000 gross square feet and under one roof for the first time will be programs in art practice, design, art history, film and media studies, and documentary film and video. The building will also include art studios, media arts labs, screening spaces, film editing rooms, exhibition space, and the Art and Architecture Library.  The McMurtry Building is to be located at 355 Roth Way located between the Cantor Arts Center and Parking Structure 1 and will open in 2015.
