5. Sperone Westwater Gallery / Foster & Partners

‘The concept for Sperone Westwater represents both a response to the Bowery’s dynamic urban character and a desire to rethink the way in which we engage with art in the setting of a gallery. The moving gallery animates the exterior of the building and creates a bold vertical element within. Like a kinetic addition to the street, it is a lively symbol of the area’s reinvention and a daring response to the Sperone Westwater’s major program. I hope that artists will be inspired by the gallery’s new spatial and structural possibilities.’

Not exciting, but an interesting building (I’m not a big fan of Foster, maybe that’s the explanation…).

Anyway, I’ll definitely visit this (also because it’s in the same street as SANAA’s museum! 🙂 – you can see that in the first picture).
