International Museum Designer Patrick Gallagher Chosen to Design the New Museum of the Jewish People

By Beit Hatfutsot

Patrick Gallagher, President and Founder of Gallagher & Associates, a leading, international professional design firm, has been chosen by Beit Hatfutsot’s Board of Directors and International Steering Committee to lead the planning and the renovation of Beit Hatfutsot’s core exhibition covering approximately 4,000 square meters (45,000 square feet). Gallagher will also assist with the planning and development of the entire 17,000 square meter (182,000 square feet) Beit Hatfutsot complex. The firm specializes in creating highly successful visitor experiences through museum master planning and interpretive planning, exhibition design and media programming and development.

Gallagher’s appointment follows a rigorous year-long search for a master designer/design firm that specializes in world-class historic museums. During this time, Avinoam Armoni, Chief Executive Officer at Beit Hatfutsot, visited dozens of museums across Europe and the United States and met with their designers, before Patrick Gallagher was chosen to lead the design of this immense project. Gallagher and Associates is headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland, San Francisco, California, and Singapore.

Gallagher & Associates’ notable projects include the National Museum of American Jewish History which recently opened in Philadelphia, Shanghai Natural History Museum, the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, the Spy Museum in Washington, DC, and the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum.
