Brooklyn Children’s Museum Comes to Brooklyn Bridge Park



Quote:
In a move calculated to raise its profile among more New Yorkers and tourists, the Brooklyn Children’s Museum will open a spinoff in Brooklyn Bridge Park Saturday October 15th. The annex, called Spark, is the 117-year old Crown Heights institution’s first permanent presence outside its original location.

The 1,850-square-feet venue at 1 John Street is expected to host 50,000 visitors in its first year.

“We’re proud that some of Brooklyn’s most venerable cultural institutions now call the park home and look forward to welcoming visitors from across the borough and the city to Spark,” said Brooklyn Bridge Park President Regina Myer.

The development is not without controversy, however. There have been debates in the community about the benefits of the expansion.

Spark will offer indoor and outdoor learning and play spaces for children ages six months to six years. The first exhibit will be Brooklyn Block Lab, an early childhood block play workshop that’s been popular at the Crown Heights location. There will be daily classes, space for birthday parties, and free admission on Thursday afternoons. The outpost will partner with several nearby schools, including P.S. 307, a STEM elementary school in nearby Vinegar Hill that was recently rezoned.

I think Gang is great and I love what she's going to do with the rear entrance of the Natural history museum, but I wish they could have chosen a New York firm. I'm thinking Steven Holl or Williams/Tsien. Both deserve more New York commissions

MoMA reveals final design for $400M expansion



Quote:
The Museum of Modern Art revealed on Thursday its final design for its $400 million renovation project, which calls for more space and a chronological and thematic approach to its exhibitions. In addition to the expansion of gallery and public spaces, the museum plans to feature more work of minority and female artists. Architecture firms Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Gensler have collaborated on the design, and the overall expansion will provide 50,000 square feet of new gallery space. The renovation is expected to wrap in 2019.

The first phase of construction, which began in February 2016, was completed this week. This phase focused on the east section of MoMA which reworked 15,000 square feet to create two galleries on the third floor and a new first-floor lounge facing the sculpture garden. The east side’s historic Bauhaus staircase was extended to the ground floor level, allowing access to the galleries on the second floor.

9/11 Tribute Museum expands space for personal stories

Quote:
A museum that tells the stories of the victims of the 9/11 terror attacks will reopen Tuesday in a new space, a little farther from the World Trade Center memorial but with triple the exhibition space of the temporary quarters it occupied for a decade.

The 9/11 Tribute Museum was originally founded in 2006 as a temporary shrine to the victims in the years that the larger, better known National September 11 Memorial and Museum was under construction and even after it opened in 2011.

The Tribute Museum offered daily guided tours of the rebuilt World Trade Center site led by people with close personal connections to the tragedy, including attack survivors, first responders, recovery workers and relatives of the dead.

More than 4 million people have visited the museum, originally called the Tribute Center and co-founded by CEO Jennifer Adams-Webb and the September 11th Families' Association, causing it to outgrow its original home in a space formerly occupied by a delicatessen.

The new space, a few blocks away, is 36,000 square-feet, about half of which is exhibition space. It is located on the ground and second floors of a high-rise building.

"Originally, when we started, we weren't sure where we were going," said Lee Ielpi, whose firefighter son, Jonathan, died in the attacks. "We realized, as the years went on, that we are making an impact."

Artifacts on display at the museum include "missing persons" posters that were hung throughout the city in the immediate aftermath of the attacks, when families still held hope that their loved ones would be found alive. Other items on display include a death certificate, a boarding pass for someone who was on one of the flights, and a section of window from one of the hijacked planes.

Full Steam Ahead for Expansion of Museum of Natural History’s Gilder Center, Upper West Side



Quote:
Permits for the expansion of the American Museum of Natural History Museum were filed with the Department of Buildings last week by Davis Brody Bond Architects, signaling the go-ahead for work to be done on one of the Upper West Side’s most recognizable buildings.

The NYC Landmark Preservation Commission has approved the expansion’s contemporary design which is expected to rise 540,000 square feet, including six floors.

Construction to expand the museum’s Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation, located at 200 Central Park West, between West 77th and West 81st Streets is expected to start soon. However, there has been no official completion date announced.

American Museum Of Natural History’s Gilder Center Expansion Ready To Move Forward, Upper West Side

The address on the filing is 200 Central Park West, and the Museum sits between West 77th and West 81st Streets, on the Upper West Side. The addition will be located on the western side of the Museum, taking up space that was intended to hold parts of the original masterplan, which was not completed.

Jeanne Gang is behind the design, which will certainly contrast against the existing architectural language of the site. While the LPC is busy finagling details on mega-mansions and townhouse expansions, it seems slightly uncharacteristic for something so jarringly dissimilar to the site’s original intended design to gain approval, but New York City’s landmarks approval process is not exactly known for its logic or common sense...

Horrible loss. That building would have been up there with the best in the city if it had been completed as planned. What a shame.

First look at Little Italy’s revamped Italian American Museum







Quote:
The museum will have a separate entrance on Mulberry Street, and will open into a central atrium with a 20-foot-tall ceiling, the architect on the project, Jonathan Scelsa, of the architecture firm op.AL, explained in an email. The lower levels of the museum will get natural light in the form of a central skylight on the ground floor. A museum gift shop will also be located on this floor.

The building that houses the museum was once the home of the Banca Stabile, a financial services institution that started serving the Italian-American community in the late 19th century. The museum now plans to incorporate artifacts from this bank into a lower level gallery.

The Italian American Museum was founded in 2001, and the hope is that this expansion will anchor the space permanently in Little Italy, and also be a place to celebrate the legacy of Italians in America.

Construction on the building is scheduled to wrap sometime in 2019. The museum will remain closed for the duration of construction. Once the new space opens, the museum’s facade will be illuminated at night.

That design doesn't remind me of Italy at all. Including contemporary Italian design.
