Gallery: Will Bruder’s Colorful Kimball Art Center Proposal is Powered ...

Energy for the building will be generated with vertical axis wind turbines and photovoltaics.

Will Bruder + Partners are currently competing against BIG, Brooks + Scarpa, Sparano + Mooney Architecture, and Tod Williams and Billie Tsien Architects to win the award to design the Kimball Art Center Transformation. This project includes the renovation of the historic center plus an expansion to create additional gallery, event, and education space. Bruder’s plan seeks to reinvent the Kimball away from its small town status into an exciting, urban and hip space. Drawing on local architectural influences as well as concepts from international artists and architects, the new KAC would be filled with modern designs and a 3 dimensional Möbius strip that defines the circulation from the inside to the outside.

The lower basement floor would feature a 165-seat screening room, which can be used for films, lectures and the Sundance Film Festival. Additionally, the lower floor would also house a street-level accessed restaurant and art studios and workshop space. The main floor houses administration offices, a lobby, gift shop and more studio space. The upper level provides access to the rooftop garden and outdoor venue and this level houses the main gallery and exhibition space.
