About This Project

The Morgan Library and Museum

New York, NY
Stuart-Lynn worked with The Renzo Piano Building Workshop and Beyer Blinder Belle to expand and enhance The Morgan Library and Museum. Formerly known as The Pierpont Morgan Library, the building provides space for lectures, films and other public programs. This project included a new entrance on Madison Avenue, improved internal circulation, new and renovated galleries, a new reading room, and substantially increased space for collections storage. The underground performance hall was expanded to seat 280. It features raked seating and superior acoustics. It is fully equipped for readings, lectures, concerts, and other live performances. Stuart-Lynn provided cost estimation services during the Schematic Design, Design Development, and Construction Document phases as well as value engineering and preliminary budget reconciliation. Stuart-Lynn also gave support for the early procurement of the curtain will and structural systems in addition to demolition.
