VANCOUVER, 27 March 2015 – Herzog & de Meuron was appointed in April 2014 to design the future Vancouver Art Gallery. As a first step in this process, the Gallery is hosting an exhibition titled Material Future that shows the history of the Vancouver Art Gallery and offers a projection into the future, introducing the design architects of the new museum to the local community. The exhibition provides an insight into Herzog & de Meuron’s working methods featuring a selection of project specific materials from their archives including models, samples, drawings, and photographs, as well as projections and other views. The new design for the future Vancouver Art Gallery site will be unveiled in late spring. The work in progress will transform the exhibition display as the project evolves.
