The Statue of Liberty Museum

Enhancing the Visitor Experience on Liberty Island FXCollaborative set two goals for the design of the Statue of Liberty Museum: 1) To create a building that uplifts the experience of the island for all visitors, and 2) To extend and add to the island’s open space, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to a beloved international monument.   Symbolizing Liberty The Statue of Liberty Museum is a garden pavilion that is designed to welcome all visitors of all ages, nationalities, and ethnicities.

Camp del Ferro Sports Centre

Given the large volume required by the functional brief (three sports courts) in relation to the limited dimensions of the site and the high urban density of the area, it was decided to semi-underground much of the sports complex. The meticulous design in section of the building ensures good lighting, natural ventilation, ease of access and safe evacuation even of the lower areas. The decision to partially underground the volume not only reduces its visual impact, it also generates an open urban space that is ceded to the city. This space acts as a public foyer to accommodate occasional large influxes of visitors and users, with entrance via this concourse or plaza that is also the urban finishing touch to the widened street. The construct... En savoir plus

390 Madison Avenue

390 Madison is a dramatic transformation and modernization of an outmoded office building in the heart of New York City’s midtown corridor. The surgical re-massing and configuration of this overbuilt property in the heart of Midtown Manhattan enabled the provision of modern work space without sacrificing valuable area. The original 1950s building predated current city zoning so the client would have lost significant GFA had it replaced the existing with a new structure. A preliminary analysis identified certain locations in the building – including areas compromised by low floor-to-ceiling heights or an unfavorable column grid – that were suitable for moving elsewhere. Based on that massing concept, the final design carv... En savoir plus

A historic Carnegie library’s legacy of educational innovation and access is reinvented as the MuseumLab. Opening in 1890, the library was one of the first free US public libraries. It fell into disrepair after lightning struck the library’s clock tower and caused a three-ton piece of granite to crash through the roof, and closed in 2006. Renovated in 2018, it now offers experimental art and technology programs for youth, a Title 1 charter middle school, and space for community events.   Expedient interior alterations from the 1970s were stripped away to reconnect spaces, reintroduce daylight and reveal the bones of the historic architecture. The resulting “beautiful ruin” has sparked imagination and curiosity... En savoir plus
