SITE Santa Fe opens the doors of its new building this October with Future Shock, a large-scale exhibition that articulates the profound impact of the acceleration of technological, social and structural change on contemporary life. The expansion, designed by SHoP Architects, enhances SITE’s capacity to engage with the city and its locality through a diverse array of exhibition and event areas. With a total of 36,000 square feet of new and renovated interior and exterior spaces, SHoP’s design features the expansion of SITElab, an experimental exhibition gallery; a flexible Auditorium for lectures; a Learning Lab; outdoor gathering and social spaces, including the Sky Terrace; and an expanded store and cafe. The build also transforms the venue into an iconic, contemporary landmark.
