Richard Gluckman, FAIA
Richard Gluckman, FAIA, founded his architectural firm in New York in 1977. His work is characterized by its clarity, efficiency and integrity and ranges from careful interventions into historic structures, to ground-up buildings of different types and scales in the United States, Europe, and Asia. He has led museum projects worldwide, including the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum (2014), Philadelphia Museum of Art, Perelman Building (2007), the downtown location of the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego (2007), Museo Picasso in Málaga, Spain (2004), Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Japan (2003), the renovation and expansion of the Whitney Museum in New York (1998), Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico (1996), and the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh (1994). Described as a “maker of precisely silent frames”, Gluckman’s modernist aesthetic is informed by the functionalist simplicity of early 20th century industrial structures of his hometown Buffalo, NY.
