Plans call for the creation of a prominent gray- and white-brick façade facing the Green that will proclaim the Hood’s presence on campus; a new Center for Object-Based Inquiry that will triple the museum’s capacity to fulfill its teaching mission; 40 percent more gallery space; and a flexible concourse that will be a new venue for gatherings and performances.
