Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art

Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art

Challenge Design-Build Project Delivery Addressed:
The University's primary objective in utilizing the design-build approach was to bring the best integrated design and construction experience to this project, which allowed UC Davis to achieve a number of far-reaching goals for programmatic needs, cost, schedule and design excellence.

Summary:
Grounded in the legacy of UC Davis’ world-renowned art faculty, the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art is a hub for creative thinkers, makers and innovators. The Museum’s light-filled, porous and flexible form integrates the indoors and outdoors, capturing the spirit of the California Central Valley. An overarching 50,000 square-foot “Grand Canopy” extends over both site and building, to create a welcoming public plaza and new symbol for the campus.
