White Cube, Green Maze: New Art Landscapes will open on February 14, 2013, at the Yale School of Architecture Gallery. The exhibition examining emerging trends in museum design through six new art sites that share the common thread of moving beyond the traditional “white cube” gallery space, and that juxtapose the experience of culture, art, architecture, and landscape.

The exhibition features newly commissioned photography of these sites by Iwan Baan, one of today’s most influential architectural photographers, as well as architects’ models, plans, and sketches; historical photographs; and maquettes and sketches by key installation artists. Each site represents a unique expression of the ambitions and collaborations of patrons, architects, landscape architects, artists, and curators. The architects range from such established masters as Tadao Ando and Álvaro Siza Vieira, to such emerging practitioners as Tatiana Bilbao and Johnston Marklee. All have ongoing relationships with museum design and collaborate with artists.

On view at Yale through May 4, 2013 , White Cube, Green Maze was organized by the Heinz Architectural Center at Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, under the direction of Raymund Ryan, who is the Center’s curator of architecture. It has been adapted for the Yale School of Architecture Gallery by Brian Butterfield, the School’s director of exhibitions.
