About STANFORD UNIVERSITY

The McMurtry Building is located at 355 Roth Way, between the Cantor Arts Center and Parking Structure 1.

Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, along with the executive architect Boora Architects, the 100,000-square-foot space elegantly unites the making and studying of art under one roof, and presents multiple opportunities for exhibitions, performance and programs.

Housed within 96,000 gross square feet and under one roof are programs in art practice, design, art history, film and media studies, and documentary film and video.

The building includes art studios, screening spaces, film editing rooms, exhibition space, the Experimental Media Art Lab and Sound Studio and the Art & Architecture Library.
