Akron Art Museum

This iconic Ohio structure is the result of an historical renovation encompassing the original 21,000 square foot 1899 building with a modernistic 63,300 square foot addition.

Key architectural elements of the building include the “Roof Cloud”, a 327-foot long cantilevered steel armature extending over part of the street, and the “Gallery Box,” an exhibition space which appears to float due to its 52-foot cantilever.

Concise fabrication and placement of the reinforcement steel was critical to achieving the innovative architectural design vision and Akron Rebar Company contracted by Parsons Concrete in partnership with Welty Building Company was entrusted with the supply, installation, and placement of that vital component of this complex project.
