When world-renowned architect Rafael Viñoly was commissioned to design a major new center for the arts at Duke University, he set about creating his first museum in North America – and the first stand-alone museum in Duke’s eighty-year history. The resulting 65,000-square-foot building has changed the cultural landscape of the university and indeed the Southeast. This book documents the genesis and design of the new museum, which opens on October 2, 2005. The building is named in honor of the family of Raymond D. Nasher, an internationally prominent art collector who graduated from Duke in 1943. With an essay by art historian Annabel Wharton, a design statement by museum architect Rafael Viñoly and a forward by museum namesake Raymond D. Nasher, this book documents the building that will become a cornerstone for cultural activities on campus and an important cultural resource for the university and the public.
