Delaware Agricultural Museum and Village

Dover, DE

Mentioned by the Smithsonian as having one of the finest collections of farm artifacts in the nation, this museum existed in a large, agricultural hall-type shed with leaking roofs, inadequate heating, and no cooling, air filtration, or humidity control. A master plan guided interpretation of the museum's collections, and the improvement and expansion of its physical plant.  In addition, a new wing was designed for exhibition and visitor services with a dramatic 'silo' structure that houses stairways and exhibits, and an entrance "arch" that makes the existing building more dynamic and visible.
