A first look at the bold expansion of New York’s New Museum

1 3 0

Come 2022, New York will have another futuristic tower — but this time it will not be another financial cathedral or $20-million condo building for Russian oligarchs. It’ll be the expansion of one of the best and most singular museums the city has to offer: The contemporary art-focused New Museum.

The existing structure. [Image: Google Maps]The new building — designed by architects OMA/Shohei Shigematsu and Rem Koolhaas in collaboration with Cooper Robertson — will require the demolition of the structure next door to the existing New Museum. Don’t worry, it is not an architectural jewel, but a nondescript office building that houses New Inc, the New Museum’s technology think tank.
