New Museum

I'm sorry I don't have a better shot to show you, but here is a picture of one of New York's newest museum buildings. This is the New Museum for Contemporary Art, which opened in its new location last month. (It's been around for much longer, but this is its new home on the Bowery on Manhattan's Lower East Side. It was designed by a Japanese architectural firm and is really quite interesting, inside and out. It reminds me of some shifting boxes. Anyway, I would recommend visiting it if you are in NYC and like contemporary art.

Umm it does look a bit like boxes piled on top of each other. Does it fit in withthe surrounding buildings is something I look for.

The building certainly fits with its content, if not its surroundings. So many interesting buildings in NYC!

It is not easy for the architects to plan interesting volumes, but this me seems very apt wing its scope of museum. The thing that leaves me perplexed is the colored written one. But sure they have reason. Ciao.

The design of the building makes itself look like a contemporary art piece.

I didn't know it was open. I saw the construction site last summer when I was in the area.
