Met Opera Names Ennead Architects to Redesign Lobby

The Metropolitan Opera has recently selected Ennead Architects to design the renovation and expansion of its lobby.

Provided it can raise the funds and get public approvals, the Met hopes to make its Lincoln Center building more welcoming by improving the cramped lobby — which the building’s architect, Wallace K. Harrison, was forced to scale back on to save money 50 years ago.

“We chose Ennead because their ideas seemed most attuned to the original Wallace Harrison plan for an extended lobby,” said Peter Gelb, the Met’s general manager, “and because of their successful designs of the recent glass extensions of the Brooklyn Museum and the Planetarium, as well as their redesign of the Public Theater lobby.”
