contributed by Naomi

The Museum of Arts & Design moved from their home at 53rd Street to the redesigned facility at Columbus Circle. The design dramatically opens up the nearly windowless building to enliven its gallery space with natural light and views of the city. A series of three separate cuts, each one a continuous line fitted with transparent and fritted glass, weaves across the building’s façade to create a light-filled, cantilevered structure. These bands of glass continue inside the building across the floors, ceilings, and walls of each level, to provide a unified sense of space and a visual connection among the galleries. The building’s façade is clad with custom-made terracotta tiles finished in a pale iridescent glaze that changes with the time of day and point of view. Through the use of glass and ceramic, two materials that figure prominently in the Museum’s collection, the new building design explores and interprets the craft traditions of the institution’s core mission.
