Fine Foam: Failed Fiberglass Opens the Door for Spray Foam at the Cleveland Museum of Art

2005 marked the beginning of Ohio’s largest cultural project in history when the Cleveland Museum of Art entered an 8-year expansion and renovation project. The architects of this $350 million project had no intention of utilizing spray foam until they discovered saturated, ineffective fiberglass in portions of the existing walls.

Designed by award-winning, Manhattan-based Rafael Vinoly Architects, the project involves the addition of the new East and West Galleries, as well as a grand glass enclosure over the atrium courtyard. The additions will increase the museum’s floor space by roughly 65 percent for a total of 592,000 square feet. The project also includes the complete renovation of the museum’s original 1916 Beaux-Arts Building and 1971 Marcel Breuer Building.
