TAO + Lee Associates has been selected to design the South Building Education Centre at the Saint Louis Art Museum.

The design firm will execute the design concept master plan for the education centre and the South Building entrance.

As part of the ongoing expansion, a dedicated school and tour group entrance to the south of the Museum will lead visitors to an expanded education centre in the south building.

The larger classrooms will allow the museum to expand educational programmes and the new entrance is expected to help ease congestion on Fine Arts Drive.

The 200,000ft² expansion to the art museum will also provide new galleries, public areas and a 300-space, below-grade parking garage.
