Great Care Was Taken to Celebrate The Existing Architecture
The original Berkeley Art Museum on the University of California, Berkeley campus is an iconic masterpiece of mid-Twentieth Century Brutalist Architecture. Recognizing the need for costly seismic upgrades in the 1990's, the museum was forced out and the building sat vacant for the next 20 years. In 2018, alumni, donors, and the University engaged MBH Architecture and their team of talented designers and engineers to seismically upgrade and refurbish the building and add 10,000 square feet of new space for multiple tenants to further develop their research of emerging life-science technologies
for the marketplace.
