During his 25 years before founding GCAM – first as Director of the Williams College Museum of Art and then 20 years as Director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation – Thomas Krens with his team attained extensive and substantial experience in developing important museum projects on a global basis.  Working with major, international architects, including five Pritzker Prize winners, these projects ranged from small 400 square meter galleries to major cultural centers of 80,000 square meters on four continents.
