after successfully surviving hurricane sandy unscathed, swiss practice herzog and de meuron‘s ‘parrish art museum‘ opened to the public on november 10 as had been planned and long awaited. the first art museum built on the east end of long island in more than a century, it is nestled diagonally on a square site, the modestly designed steel and wood frame section measuring 29 meters wide extruded to an astounding 187 meters long, relying on the quality of light and immensity of space to define the exhibition space’s character covering 34,400-square-feet. seven skylit galleries comprising 7,600-square-feet will be devoted to parrish’s collection. the north-facing skylights drove the entire basis for the orientation of the project on the site, benefiting from the right indirect light in which to view artwork, but also allowing the native agriculture to envelope the archetypal farm structure. for a more detailed review of the building, see designboom’s earlier coverage here.

  • Wow! An Art Barn! The restraint displayed by the designers is truly impressive. Great work!
