Norman Foster Gallery

The NYTimes had an article on a small new gallery being built in NYC by Norman Foster, with nice pics of a gallery on a very tight site (next to a big ugly brick building) that reminded me of the CMoA North site.  Note how the few images presented in the article give a fairly complete expression about the main ideas and spaces: a tight site, strong street presence, separate (tall) entry space, main gallery with multi-story space at center for large art works, upper floor galleries, storage space, small outdoor display area…

Clear, concise, thoughtful, yet satisfying all the program elements.

    I am not excited for this building. Rents will go up in the neighborhood and drive out the already struggling area. This is adjacent Tompkins Square Park where Food Not Bombs serves food. Food Not Bombs and the non-profit association housing the organization can hardly pay rent.

    On a similar note:
