David Adjaye to Design New Home for NYC's Studio Museum

After nearly a half century of operating in inadequate spaces, Harlem's Studio Museum is finally investing in a ground-up facility of its own. The Times reports that the museum, in a public-private partnership with the city, will construct a $122 million facility designed by architect David Adjaye at the site of its current space on West 125th Street. The plans for the five-story, 71,000-square-foot museum will be presented to the city's public design commission on July 14, and include a glass-fronted lobby with a "reverse stoop" of bleacher-like seating as well as a cafe, educational and studio space, and a free rooftop space.
