“The design of this building emerged from many years of conversations with the whitney, which took us back to the museum’s origins,” explained renzo piano. “we spoke about the roots of the whitney in downtown new york, and about this opportunity to enjoy the open space by the hudson river. museum experience is about art, and it also about being connected to this downtown community and to this absolutely extraordinary physical setting.”
