Weisman Museum

Completed in 1993, the Weisman Museum was completed four years before Gehry’s critically-acclaimed Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. The 47,000 sf museum and garage house 11,000 sf of galleries which use daylight and shading controls to provide ambient light while protecting the paintings on display. L+U staff provided both energy analysis and extensive daylighting studies of the galleries using physical models and computer simulations to tune the illumination levels to curatorial standards for the collection.
