Description:

Celebrate your big day in a setting of inspiration and excitement at the Akron Art Museum. The 2007 design by Coop Himmelb(l)au integrated approximately 21,000 square feet of the 1899 brick building (formerly Akron's main post office) with a new 63,300 square foot building. Coop Himmelb(l)au founded in 1968 by principals Wolf D. Prix and Helmut Swiczinsky, is renowned for its leadership in contemporary architectural theory and practice and its thought-provoking approach to the reinvention of existing buildings. The Akron Art Museum is the firm's first public project in the United States and, while still under construction, received a 2005 American Architecture Award from the Chicago Athenaeum. A new addition in 2016 is the contemporary Bud and Susie Rogers Garden. Providing an outside green space in the heart of Downtown Akron, the gardens allow for outdoor ceremonies, cocktail hours, and celebrations. The Akron Art Museum is one of the most dynamic and unique wedding venues in Northeast Ohio.
