AMNH Gem Hall wins Design Award
After four years of renovation, Ralph Appelbaum Associates have completed the transformation of the American Museum of Natural History’s world-renowned Allison and Roberto Mignone Halls of Gems and Minerals showcasing the Museum’s vast mineralogy collection and integrating interpretive graphics and media programs for a new generation of diverse museum visitors.
The Allison and Roberto Mignone Halls of Gems and Minerals project has recently been awarded a 2022 Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
The Hall of Minerals is anchored by a central “allée,” flanked by cases that feature groupings of the most beautiful specimens, as well as individual displays of the most spectacular, iconic single specimens.
