The museum forms itself by extending and folding the many circulatory and visual connections.
Will present contemporary works within a historical collection of more than 7,500 objects, ranging from the Greek and Roman periods to modern art.
MSU President Lou Anna Simon, said:
“Great art deserves great architecture, and so does a great university. The Broad Museum’ s bold concept and design reflect Michigan State’s ethos of connecting both campus and community to world-class innovation, global vision, and transformative opportunity.”
Zaha Hadid, said:
“Cultural engagement is paramount. The design of the Broad invites dialogue with the university, the community of East Lansing and beyond.”
Eli Broad: said:
“We expect that people from East Lansing and around the world will be drawn to see this bold architecture as much as to view the art within its walls. This museum has special significance to us because it represents the intersection of two of our passions-art and education. There is no doubt that this museum will help propel MSU far into the future as it serves and enriches the students and community.”
