Smile NEW YORK | Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art | 6 Floors

Will SPURA Lot Get A Boxy Giant White Cartoon Museum?

http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2011/0...oon_museum.php

Quote:
A French architecture firm just released their plans for the new location of the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art to ArchDaily and they want to put that baby right in the middle of the SPURA site at Delancey and Norfolk. The firm, Planda Architecture wants to build a six-story "opposition" to the rest of the projects in the neighborhood like the New Museum and BLUE by giving the building a "a minimal aspect by covering it with an opaque and uniform envelope. As a monolith, the building exists by expressing a clear introversion in a heterogeneous environment." The title of that description? "False Modesty." Of course, this is just a proposal and MOCCA is looking at others. Right now the museum is occupying a floor at 594 Broadway in SoHo. We welcome you, oh Glowing White Mecca of Delancey Street.

I really dislike this design. There is a reason they did not show any renders of the side of the box during the daytime, it will just look like a strange white/gray cube, with no personality at all. The white nightlite is going to be hated by NIMBYs as well. I would think such an interesting and diverse subject as comic books could inspire a much better design.

It should have Batman style word bursts that fly out of it from time to time.

I believe this is part of a competition a few of my friends entered. There are dozens of proposals and none of them are near build-able yet.

A cartoon museum should be whimsical, not vacuous. And color is definitely a necessity - preferably bold colors that recall childhood.
