Phoenix Art Museum is a composite of several buildings constructed over a period of fifty years. In 1994, construction began on the expansion and renovation of the Museum, spearheaded by architects Tod Williams/Billie Tsien & Associates.
The new addition is constructed of pre-cast concrete panels with a grey green calcite aggregate. The color recalls the pale green bark of palo verde trees and the sagebrush of the desert. The large panels from a solid exterior that shields the Museum from the desert sun and the façade creates a canvas for the moving shadows of the palm and palo verde trees that are planted along Central Avenue.
This signature metal bookmark is derived from Phoenix Art Museum's now iconic and unique architecture and aggregate exterior.
