The New Exhibition Building is part of the program of the world's foremost museum of American decorative arts to open its collection to a wider audience. The New Exhibition Building is connected to the entrance of the museum with a large, conservatory-like pavilion, echoing two conservatories elsewhere at Winterthur. The rest of the addition of 45,000 square feet consists of stair and entry areas and two floors of flexible exhibition space. The addition runs across a shallow glen and bridges a small stream, terminating the long, downhill facade of the existing museum.
