Plans revealed for new Whitney Museum.

The Whitney Museum has unveiled the plans for its new downtown space, designed by Renzo Piano. After much debate, the new Whitney will not connect to the High Line for security reasons. Groundbreaking on the new museum will take place on May 24. The museum’s current location, a Marcel Breuer-designed building on the Upper East Side, holds only 10% of the Whitney’s permanent collection.


One can only hope that an appreciative new resident for Breuer's building will be found. It would be a major architectural loss were it not to survive.

Re: Finding a new resident for Breuer's building. We agree. It would be tragic to see it end up like his building on Rte 95 in New Haven. It's vacant and just sitting there.
