the building’s design by bonetti/kozerski seeks to present a more open and accessible model of art display and engagement, with an outdoor gallery that is visually connected to the high line and the historical chelsea surroundings. metal-clad in and with a black volcanic stone façade, the pace gallery encloses a variety of exhibition spaces, from expansive column-free galleries to a suspended double story penthouse. additionally, a unique lighting concept on the second and ground floors—developed in collaboration with lighting designer arnold chan—which automatically adjusts the ambient light to complement the hue and vibrancy of the works on view. the ground floor will also feature a public library showcasing pace’s extensive collection of more than 10,000-catalogued volumes and 20’ (6 meter) ceilings for rotating exhibitions.
