Architecture of the Paul J. Schupf Wing

The Paul J. Schupf Wing for the Works of Alex Katz is based on plans drawn by the late English architect Max Gordon, who designed the widely admired Saatchi Collection in London. Gordon was described in a New York Times obituary as “an architect internationally known for his mastery of exhibition spaces” and “the architect of choice for museums, dealers’ galleries, and private collections.” After Gordon’s death, his plans were expanded by Scott Teas of TFH Architects in Portland, Maine. The addition contains 10,000 square feet and consists of two 70' x 36' galleries, two 36' x 36' galleries, a vestibule connecting the gallery to the existing Jetté Galleries and a storage area for work not on view.
