Philadelphia-based Kieran Timberlake will provide the design for the second phase of expansion at the Michener Art Museum in Pennsylvania, US.

The $13.2m expansion will see construction of the 2,700ft² Edgar Putman Event Center, which will be a light-filled, all-glass structure with a solid roof and sliding doors on its east and west sides.

Plans also include the renovation of the Ann and Herman Silverman pavilion, which will be converted into an education complex with two classrooms, a larger museum shop and cafe, and a children's gallery.
