nyc: new museum

I've been so busy wrapping up my studies in Germany (pictures will be coming up soon!) that I haven't been able to get myself to post for exactly a month. Nearing the end of this New York series, I choose a detail of the building of the New Museum. Designed by two Japanese architects, Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, it stands out in a gritty, run down neighborhood of Bowery in Manhattan and hosts modern art galleries as well as a cultural center.
