New Museum, New York
Lately visiting museums has become more about experiencing the space, than the art for me (definitely influenced by the fact that I work for architects). I loved all the details at the new[ly renovated] New Museum in New York from the mismatched chairs and tables in the cafe (and how the Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries installation behind it became part of the ambiance), the gorgeous tile “tapestry” walls in the bathroom (yes, I did photograph the bathroom) and the elegant white on white donor signage (I also do this for a living, so I appreciate when it’s done well). It’s worth a visit just for the scenic view (and designer chairs) on the 7th floor.

I definetely agree on visiting this museum for the space alone regardless of what’s on. Was there in December. The exhibition was meh but the building fabulous.
