Queens Museum of Art
Grimshaw Architects with Ammann & Whitney
The 105,000-square-foot design will increase the museum's visibility from Grand Central Parkway and better integrate the building with Flushing Meadows Corona Park. The focal element of the design is a sky-lit winter garden within the existing interior. Seven galleries will be arranged around this central atrium, and louvered skylights will allow natural light to filter into the exhibition spaces.
