April 2012: On the Drawing Board
LAUSD's first design-build project; Daytona Museum of Arts expansion; and more.
$7.5 million expansion planned for Daytona Museum of Arts and Sciences
The Orlando, Fla., office of VOA Associates has been selected as the design architect for a $7.5 million expansion of the Daytona Museum of Arts and Sciences in Daytona Beach, Fla. An existing wing, which is 30 inches below the main structure, will be demolished and a replacement wing will be built at the same grade as the museum complex, reducing the threat of flooding. The plan calls for 24,000 sf of new space for galleries, exhibits, and support, as well as a new kitchen, volunteer room, information and ticketing areas, planetarium, and central Great Hall.
