Gallery on Bowery

The Sperone Westwater Gallery is another interesting lantern just the block from the New Museum for Contemporary Art on Bowery, New York.  'Foster + partners concept for the Gallery is both a response to the dynamic urban character of the neighbourhood and a desire to rethink the way in which the public engages with art in the setting of a gallery'. The lower 5 floors are connected by a moving room, which is an original approach to vertical movement within a gallery building.  This animated box is part of a bold initiative to reinvigorate the neighborhood.
