“As the cultural heritage sector continues to grapple with its relationship to diversity, equity and inclusion, some institutions are re-considering their social responsibility from the ground up. Enter Maine’s Portland Museum of Art (PMA), which launched an open call last June soliciting ‘paradigm-shifting’ designs from architecture firms all over the world. After receiving more than 100 proposals, the museum narrowed the field to four finalists in November and then, on 9 January, selected the winner, a design by the sustainability-minded firm Lever Architecture.”
