Whitney Museum of American Art
The uptown fixture will soon make its way to a new home downtown: Construction on the Whitney's Renzo Piano--designed structure, located near the High Line, began in June. Plans to expand the museum have been underway for more than two decades, and it was just last year that the board voted to bring its collection to the Meatpacking District. Once the transition takes place (slated for 2015), the Metropolitan Museum of Art will utilize the Whitney's iconic Marcel Breuer--designed cube on Madison Avenue for exhibits, lectures and more. Plans for the Whitney's new space include multiple outdoor galleries (from which visitors can peek out onto the High Line), massive salons for temporary exhibits and its permanent collection, and a revamped caf. Get the full scoop in "Designing the Whitney of the Future," which is currently on view at the museum.
