Project Team

<< Back to main New Museum page

ARCA Design, an Asheville firm, is the project’s Architect of Record, leading the efforts to bring the vision of the Ennead Architects design to fruition. Under the leadership of Alan McGuinn, FAIA and Bryan Moffitt, AIA, ARCA Design encourages a participatory design approach that creates architecture tailored to the needs of the inhabitants that is integrated into a thoughtful contextual response.

Clearscapes Architecture + Art, based in Raleigh, is working in collaboration with ARCA on final design elements. Clearscapes was formed in 1981 as a collaboration between an architect and an artist around the shared idea that architecture should be a functional work of art that serves to engage and inspire its users and their community.

Beverly-Grant, founded in 1995 and WNC’s largest builder, is an award-winning general contractor and developer with extensive experience in all types of commercial and industrial facilities.
