The expansion and renovation of the Museum of the Moving Image in the Astoria section of Queens, N.Y., involved a complete redesign of its first floor and the construction of a three-story 47,000-sf addition. The extra square footage doubled the size of the museum, which is dedicated to the art, industry, and innovation of screen culture in all forms—from 19th-century optical toys to modern Web content. The $67 million project included a redesigned entrance and new lobby with a 50-foot-long video wall, a café, new gallery space, a 267-seat theater, a 68-seat film and digital media theater, and the Ann R. and Andrew H. Tisch Education Center, which is designed to handle 60,000 visiting school students annually. Outside, a new 10,370-sf courtyard will host fair-weather screening events. The Building Team included Lesser Architecture, F.J. Sciame Construction Co. (CM), Ambrosino, DePinto & Schneider (MEP), Anastos Engineering (structural), and Levien & Co. (owner’s rep).
