Provincetown Art Association & Museum, Machado Silvetti (Architectural Record)

Operating from a white clapboard house since 1921, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM) has been a longstanding presence on Cape Cod. But ad hoc additions over the years left the museum an architectural collage of disjointed constituent parts.With each addition carrying its own mechanical system, the museum was not only unsightly, but also inefficient. The lack of climate control and leaking roofs discomfited employees and visitors, but more important, prevented the museum from borrowing artwork from other institutions.
