The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) Expansion increases the Museum to approximately 105,000-sq.-ft. total and provides a new 41 space parking garage.
Currently, MCASD has approximately 55,400-sq.-ft. in total area including 11,000-sq.-ft. of gallery space and a 9,500-sq.-ft. auditorium. The primary goal of the expansion is to maximize gallery space. The proposed design delivers 46,000-sq.-ft. of gallery space which includes the renovation and repurpose of the existing auditorium into a two-level gallery with 20-foot-high ceilings and a new skylight on the upper level.
The design includes a newly located and redefined main entry and bookstore along Prospect Street. An existing parking lot to the north will be converted into a new outdoor terrace with expansive coastal views. A new art loading dock has been incorporated into the parking garage to the South under the newly proposed gallery spaces.
