The Kimbell Art Museum announced today that they will build an expansion across the street from the current building which was designed Louis Kahn. They have selected architect Renzo Piano to design a new building that will compliment the award winning museum that opened in 1972. Specifics about size, construction timeline, etc. still have not yet been determined.

Designs have been released for the new Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. The new building, designed by Ricardo Legorreta, will replace the existing museum with a footprint that will cut across Gendy St, closing that street to traffic, toward the Cowgirl Museum and creating a plaza between the two. The existing Museum of Science and History will close on September 3rd, then be demolished to make way for the new facility which will open in the fall of 2009. The Noble Planetarium and Imax Omni Theater will remain, but will close for a short period for upgrades. There will also be space in the new building for a new Cattle Raisers Museum.
