RFP Seeks Design Proposals for New Bronx Museum Wing

New York City Development Corporation released a Request for Proposals (RFP) on behalf of the Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA) and The Bronx Museum of the Arts seeking an architect to design the Bronx Museum’s new South Wing Atrium. Submissions for the RFP will be accepted until August 2.

The renovation of the space includes construction of a new South Wing Atrium and main entrance, located on the corner of Grand Concourse and 165th Street, which will create an enhanced entrance to the Museum with a spacious lobby that includes seating, gathering space and large street-facing walls for artwork. 

“The Bronx Museum is a cultural hub for the South Bronx community,” said DCLA’s Andrew Burmeister. “With the release of this RFP, we look forward to finding a partner to realize the vision for this important institution, making it more open, accessible, and welcoming to all.”
