This week, the New Museum announced plans for a second building that will nearly double the institution’s footprint to 115,277 square feet at 235 Bowery on the Lower East Side. The structure, designed by OMA’s Shohei Shigematsu and Rem Koolhaas in collaboration with Cooper Robertson, will rise 174 feet between Prince Street and Stanton Street. At seven stories high, the new development will dedicate three floors to gallery space, along with a cafe, bookstore, offices, community and education programs, art storage, and terraces concealed in triangular cutouts on the top three levels.
