New Museum

The New Museum announced today plans for its second building, designed by OMA / Shohei Shigematsu and Rem Koolhaas. This will be OMA’s first public building in New York City. The new structure will complement and respect the integrity of the adjoining SANAA-designed flagship building, while asserting its own distinct identity. The seven story, 60,000 square foot building will include three floors of galleries, doubling the Museum’s exhibition space, along with additional space for the Museum’s many community and education programs, a permanent home for NEW INC, as well as increased public amenities and improved vertical circulation.
