The New York Whitney Museum addition will be a brilliant deconstructivist essay against the original brutalist structure. Designed as an intricate collection of spaces and connected suspended floor planes, this new portion of the Museum of American Art is made possible by an elaborate lattice configuration.

With the original 1960s concrete structure by Marcel Breuer, the new architectural firm on the project Axis Mundi is taking inspiration from the old. This time with more focus on urban integration, the Whitney Museum addition with incorporate the surrounding grounds and extend its circulation systems into the city.
