Foster Gallery in NYC

The NYTimes had an article on a small new gallery being built in NYC by Norman Foster, with nice pics of a gallery on a very tight site (next to a big ugly brick building) that reminded me of the CMoA North site.  Note how the few images presented in the article give a fairly complete expression about the main ideas and spaces: a tight site, strong street presence, separate (tall) entry space, main gallery with multi-story space at center for large art works, upper floor galleries, storage space, small outdoor display area…

Clear, concise, thoughtful, yet satisfying all the program elements.
