The man who designed the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City and the Centre Pompidou in Paris has been chosen to design a new cultural complex in Boca Raton, Fla.

Piano, who won the Pritzker Prize for his work on the Whitney Museum and the Pompidou, will design the new complex with his firm, Renzo Piano Building Workshop.
