BIG?s design for the new Kimball Art Center, inspired by the urban development of Park City, the Kimball site, and the city?s mining heritage, envisions the building as an anchor for the street life on Main St. and as a gateway and landmark for Park City. The new Kimball is designed with the flexibility, character and personality necessary to become a natural incubator for public life.
