Review 2019-2020

The New Museum
 
As part of its expansion programme, the New Museum has added a new structure to complement its existing galleries, rather than renovate the interior of the former restaurant supply company next door.

Designed by OMA, the new structure will add 60,000 sq ft of space with a more welcoming lobby across both buildings and connections through all seven floors.

The new structure will also include three new terraces that correspond with the adjacent iconic Sanaa building’s Sky Room and its wraparound outdoor space. The space will improve visitor flow throughout the building and allow the institution to offer programs like its business incubator and urban-policy think tank.

Although there is no permanent collection, the museum's ambitious exhibitions feature contemporary artists and works not widely seen in New York.
