New York, New York | Axis Mundi has re-imagined the Whitney Downtown Museum with a
self-initiated proposal that is raw and provocative, and as bold in spirit as the original Breuer building on Madison Avenue.
Invisible Sight Lines Organize Program
The site is located at the beginning of the High Line, at the intersection of Washington and Gansevoort Streets. Axis Mundi sought to ground the new building in a web of historical axes which form and organize the program. The plan is based on a series of sight lines extending to 10th Avenue, the Empire State Building, the Whitney on Madison, and the location of the original Whitney on West 10th Street.
