Quick Tease: No Museum Of Performance & Design For Mr. Dziewulski?
UPDATE: Stop the
presses rumor mill! According to a conversation with D. Donald Spradlin, Director of External Affairs for the Museum of Performance & Design, four firms remain on the short-list (down from the 17 that responded), the subcommittee responsible for recommending one of the four to the Museum Board has yet to make its pitch, and the Board’s final vote won’t occur until September 11th. Also noted, an option for the site has been secured and the target opening date is 2012.
Our apologies for any confusion and our thanks to the good natured Mr. Spradlin ("...it’s great to see the museum generating so much interest!"). Of course that's not to say Diller Scofidio & Renfro won't be the eventual winner, but they aren't yet. Now back to the site and Mark Dziewulski design...
