The Whitney Museum of American Art – one of the only museums in New York City dedicated to American art – will move to its new home in the Meatpacking District in spring 2015.
Scott Newman, partner at Cooper, Robertson & Partners and partner-in-charge of the new Whitney Museum in collaboration with the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, will provide a sneak preview of the building’s interiors. He will touch on how the design reflects the museum’s unique mission and how that informs the display of art while actively engaging with the needs of a growing audience, the surrounding community, the city, and the environment.
He will be joined by Larissa Gentile, building project manager at the Whitney Museum.
Presented in association with Archtober, Architecture and Design Month New York City, October 2014.
