The new three-story Sie Welcome Center will serve as a gateway between the museum’s Frederic C. Hamilton Building and the Lanny and Sharon Martin Building (formerly known as North Building), which is being modernized for future visitors. The Martin Building, which was designed by Gio Ponti, will also partially reopen.
