Richard Gluckman, FAIA, has led museum projects worldwide, including the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum (2014), Philadelphia Museum of Art, Perelman Building (2007), the downtown location of the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego (2007), Museo Picasso in Málaga, Spain (2004), Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Japan (2003), the renovation and expansion of the Whitney Museum in New York (1998), Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico (1996), and the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh (1994). Described as a “maker of precisely silent frames”, Gluckman’s modernist aesthetic is informed by the functionalist simplicity of early 20th-century industrial structures of his hometown Buffalo, NY, specifically grain elevators.
Gluckman’s involvement with New York minimalist architecture began in the late 1970s with the design of an Upper East Side residence for Heiner Friedrich and Philippa de Menil, founders of the Dia Art Foundation. His reputation as the “artists’ architect” grew in 1987 with the renovation of a four-story reinforced concrete warehouse into Dia Center for the Arts, and solidified in the mid-1990s following his conversion of five early 20th-century industrial spaces in Chelsea for gallerists Larry Gagosian, Mary Boone, and Paula Cooper. He has completed homes and studios for artists including Chuck Close (in Water Mill, New York), Francesco Clemente (Greenpoint, Brooklyn), Don Gummer (Long Island City, Queens), Ellsworth Kelly (Spencertown, New York), Louise Lawler (Clinton Hill, Brooklyn) and Richard Serra (Nova Scotia, Canada), and collaborated on site-specific installations with artists Walter de Maria (New York Earth Room, 1977, Broken Kilometer, 1979) and Jenny Holzer.
Gluckman received his bachelor of architecture and master of architecture from Syracuse University. He has held visiting critic and lecturer positions at universities including Harvard, Columbia, and Syracuse, and most recently an architecture residency at the American Academy in Rome (2017). Additionally, Gluckman has served on various boards including the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Van Alen Institute, and as chair of the Architectural Advisory Board for Syracuse University.
