“The New Norton redefines the museum’s relationship with the city by means of a dynamic new West Wing,” said architect Lord Foster. “The design celebrates the local landscape and architecture, taking advantage of the Museum’s excellent location in the heart of West Palm Beach and transforming the landscape to create a museum within a garden. Most importantly, the fully-realized museum campus will accommodate the future growth of this important cultural institution.”
- Lord Norman Foster
