Penn State – Palmer Museum of Art

The 71,000 SF Palmer Museum of Art at Penn State will provide a cultural hub for students, faculty, and visitors by blending art, culture, education, and nature in one space. Located next to the H.O. Smith Botanic Gardens in The Arboretum, the building will replace the current facility and serve as a unifier between the botanic gardens and art museum. Building features include flexible exhibition space, indoor and outdoor event spaces, classrooms, recreation areas, a teaching gallery, study, and research room. Langan spearheaded the land development-approval process, which required separate approvals from College Township and State College Borough; coordinated the relocation of utilities; developed a stormwater management approach; and designed a pedestrian and bicycle path.
