Speed Art Museum, Louisville

5 of 14

Kentucky’s Speed Art Museum reopened in March after a major overhaul that includes renovations to its existing neoclassical structure and two newly constructed buildings designed by Los Angeles firm wHY Architecture: a 62,000-square-foot North Pavillion, which houses modern and contemporary art, and a South Pavilion containing a theatre and a sculpture garden. The museum’s modern new face is the North Pavilion, a stack of three cantilevered rectangular volumes; it features an ultra-sleek exterior of fritted glass and corrugated metal panels.
