New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York

Time-lapse clip of the New Museum’s construction.

Situated in the Bowery in the south of Manhattan, the New Museum was erected on a site only 20 m wide. The extensive spatial programme has been distributed vertically over nine levels, creating a 53-metre-high tower that forms an urban landmark. The overall volume is visually reduced by articulating the structure into a series of inpidual stacked boxes offset from each other.

Architects: SANAA / Kazuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishizawa, Tokyo
