The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), Boston, has selected four finalists for the design of its new 60,000-sq.-ft. facility in a planned mixed-use waterfront development in the city's south end: Office dA of Boston, Studio Granda of Iceland, Diller + Scofidio of New York, and Peter Zumthor of Switzerland. The building, Boston's first art museum to be constructed in almost 100 years, will allow ICA to establish and exhibit a permanent collection focusing on contemporary works by emerging and established artists. The winning proposal will be announced later this spring and the facility is slated to open in 2004.
