Final details unveiled for OMA’s expansion of the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York

We wanted to create a highly public face that would be a conduit of art and activities
– Shohei Shigematsu

OMA have released images of their latest design for the New Museum of Contemporary Art expansion in Manhattan, New York which has been in the planning stages since May 2016.

Set to rise at 235 Bowery, next to the recently completed SANAA-designed flagship, the future structure will more than double the museum's capacity, adding 937 sq m of exhibition space.

The US$63m (€55.3m, £49.5m) extension will also add an 80-cover restaurant, an artist-in-residence studio, a bookstore, a lobby, and a 75-seat auditorium.

OMA said the annex will “communicate the activities of the Museum outwards while creating a more inviting presence and drawing the public inwards”.

OMA partner, Shohei Shigematsu, explained: “We wanted to create a highly public face – starting from the exterior plaza and atrium stair to terraced multipurpose rooms at the top – that will be a conduit of art and activities, providing openness to engage Bowery and the city beyond.”

New York-based firm Cooper Robertson will serve as the Architect of Record, while ARUP will provide structural engineering oversight.

Construction is expected to be completed by 2022.
