Buidling History

The McMurty Building for the Department of Art and Art History at Stanford University opened by the start of fall quarter 2015. Its official dedication occurred on 10/06/2015. According to Stanford's web site on the building: "Diller Scofidio + Renfro, along with the executive architect, Portland, OR-based Boora Architects, designed not only a new home for the Department of Art & Art History but an interdisciplinary hub for the arts at Stanford that is fostering interaction and collaboration among students and faculty, and support the integration of the arts into university life. Housed within 96,000 gross square feet and under one roof are programs in art practice, design, art history, film and media studies, and documentary film and video. The building include art studios, screening spaces, film editing rooms, exhibition space, the Experimental Media Art Lab and Sound Studio and the [Bowes] Art & Architecture Library."
