The Park Avenue Armory has announced the latest installment of its $200 million revitalization project by architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron: the Board of Officers Room will be getting a makeover, thanks to a $15 million gift from Angela Thompson and the family of Wade F.B. Thompson (whose name graces the Armory’s 55,000-square-foot drill hall after a $35 million gift in 2007).

After the renovation, the Board of Officers Room will hold smaller-scale performances and installations. The new space is expected to be completed in the fall of 2013.
