Koret-Taube Grand Lobby


The Koret-Taube Grand Lobby, a 2,500 square foot public space, serves as a dynamic entry to the Museum. Entering through the main doors off of Jessie Square, visitors encounter the look and feel of an early twentieth-century industrial building. Daniel Libeskind's design for the new building preserved many of the substation's original character defining features including, the original trusses, catwalk, and crane. During construction these historic fixtures, now painted gray, were renovated and reinstated in their original locations.
