LEVER Architecture’s Mass Timber Design Selected for Portland Museum of Art Expansion

Among a total of 104 worldwide entries, LEVER Architecture’s mass timber design has been selected over three other international semifinalist teams to design an expansion of the Portland Museum of Art (PMA) in Maine’s largest City.

The $100 million project will add approximately 60,000 square feet of space to the campus in the form of a new facility that “knits together” with the PMA’s four existing downtown buildings and will help accommodate the anticipated 300,000 to 500,000 annual visitors.

LEVER will work together with an assembled cohort that includes Scott Simons and Unknown Studio, Chris-Newell-Akomawt Educational Initiative, Openbox, Once-Future Office, Atelier Ten, Guy Nordenson, Arup, and Studio Pacifica to complete the design project.
