Following a $50-million renovation and expansion, the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Ky., opened once again on Saturday. The museum has been closed since 2012 for construction of two pavilions, designed by Los Angeles– and New York–based firm Why with local firm K. Norman Berry Associates Architects. The project also included renovations of the existing spaces. "Rather than create a stand-alone expansion, we wanted to activate the original building from multiple points in order to heal the whole. We called it 'Acupuncture Architecture'," said Why founder and creative director, Kulapat Yantrasast, in a press release.
