Westmoreland Museum of American Art – 18 Jul 2013
Groundbreaking news for the renovation and expansion of the Westmoreland Museum of American Art, located in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, designed by Susan T. Rodriguez of Ennead Architects. The design creates a new face and identity for the original neo-Georgian building, which enhances the Museum’s link to the City. The L-shaped massing of the expanded building features a new south-facing façade that visually frames the original brick building and forms a linear porch along its length.
