Beauty by the Bay: The Dalí Museum by HOK

Published Sep 28, 2017

Located in St. Petersburg, Florida, The Dalí Museum houses the world’s most comprehensive collection of Salvador Dalí’s art outside of Spain.

The striking building, designed by global architecture firm HOK was named one of AOL Travel’s “Buildings you have to see before you die,” and we can clearly see why.

“The design challenge was to create an affordable, iconic building symbolic of the Spanish painter’s work. The team ensured technical feasibility and design excellence while avoiding ‘kitsch.’

The three-story museum is on a beautiful bayside site along St. Petersburg’s downtown waterfront. The dramatic envelope balances the exhibition and protection of the priceless masterpieces within a simple, powerful aesthetic. A ‘treasure box&rsquo shelters the 2,000-piece collection from potential Category 5 hurricane winds and storm surges.”
