ART DAILY - Global architecture and design firm Morphosis has been selected by Texas Tech University and the Museum of Texas Tech University to develop the planning and design of a visionary expansion to the current museum that would create a new model for university-community engagement.

The Universiteum of Texas Tech will create a dynamic interdisciplinary space dedicated to fostering ideas and exchanging cultural experiences that brings together the Museum's diverse collection of 8 million objects with the entire range of research and academic disciplines of the University. The project will encompass 40,000 square feet of flexible gallery space, including the first large traveling exhibition gallery capable of housing major blockbuster shows in West Texas; a new type of Community Engagement Center that will give faculty, staff, and students an unprecedented public face; and integral new components to the Natural Science Research Laboratory, including laboratories, work areas, and collection storage facilities.
