Hiroshi Sugimoto to Redesign Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden March 11, 2019

Following a successful renovation of the museum’s lobby by Hiroshi Sugimoto, the museum began working with Sugimoto to develop a concept design for the garden. The new vision will create spaces for large-scale contemporary works and performances, as well as intimate spaces for the museum’s modern masterpieces. Initial concept designs also include reopening the underground passage, which has been closed for 30 years, but was an important element in architect Gordon Bunshaft’s original design, connecting the garden to the museum plaza.
