This is the exterior of the New Museum in New York.
The museum is dedicated to ‘new art, new ideas’. They are known for being adventurous in the selection of new and emerging artists that they choose to exhibit. The building’s design exemplifies this. It’s new, it’s different, it’s fun! It also won their Japanese designers a highly prestigious architectural award in 2010.
Situated on Bowery at the intersection of Sutton St, the New Museum stands out among the brown ironstones and old shops of Nolita. It also stands out because of it’s fabulous design, which has been described as a ‘sculptural stack of rectilinear boxes dynamically shifted off axis around a central steel core’.
