Venice, Calif.-based architect Frank Gehry--still in the running to design the Walt Disney Concert Hall--won another commission Tuesday, when he and three other architectural concerns were tapped to turn a 19th-Century factory in North Adams, Mass., into the world’s largest contemporary art museum. Gehry; Robert Venturi; Bruner-Cott & Associates of Cambridge, Mass., and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill of New York were all chosen by a panel of international art experts and local businessmen and politicians after a two-day study of 23 proposals for revamping the factory at a cost of more than $30 million. Gehry designed L.A.'s Temporary Contemporary, and Venturi is working on a wing to the National Gallery of Art in London.
