 Last week, officials at the Frick Collection announced plans to build a new six-story wing that will hold 60,000 square feet of new exhibition space. Now new renderings by Davis Brody Bond Architects and Planners have emerged.

The expansion will grow the total space at 1 East 70th Street by roughly one-third — pending Landmarks Preservation Commission approval. Plans call for the new wing to Connect The Museum With The Art Reference Library On East 71st Street. In the process a private, gated garden will be torn down, and a new rooftop garden will be created.

And with the renderings, new details have also been released. The expansion would add a gallery space on the first floor, as well as opening several second-story rooms for the first time, according to Curbed. It will also feature two new classrooms, a new study room, and an updated conservation lab and auditorium. The building will also be receiving updates, such as an enlarged entrance hall, new elevators and a new shop. [Curbed] Christopher Cameron
