The Hulman Pavilion balances an older auditorium across the entrance plaza. The 4 story extension of the existing museum which housed the Eiteljorg collection of African and South Pacific Art. The pavilion increased the exhibition space to more than 80,000 square feet. The expansion aimed to provide clearer chronological continuity and a new chain of galleries creating continuous circulation with splashes of daylight from skylights and windows. In addition to gallery spaces the wing included executive and administrative offices, curatorial work rooms and offices and art storage.
