location New York, New York
function library, museum
contributed by piotr_krajewski

Located on Madison Avenue, in Lower Manhattan, the Library is one of the world's most important museums for rare books, manuscripts and drawings. An intervention was necessary to meet new requirements that were much needed by the library. These included improved internal circulation and the creation of new spaces within the perimeter of the complex. An additional aim was to reunify the existing buildings and restore a sense of harmony to the overall complex. Three new pavilions have been built to house entrance facilities, exhibition galleries, a new reading room and administrative offices. An internal piazza connects the spaces, facilitating circulation between the six different wings of the Morgan Library (text from architect's website).
