As part of NYCxDESIGN, the Center for Architecture will host an Archtober preview featuring five days of building tours across the five boroughs, with a focus on cultural institutions. Join us on Thursday, May 16 for a tour of the Noguchi Museum.
Sage and Coombe worked with the Noguchi Museum in Long Island City, Queens for more than a decade to renovate and modernize the historic building in three phases, affording the museum accessibility, allowing it to remain open year-round, and bringing it to the rigorous standards of contemporary museums – all while maintaining the unique character of the space. The renovation encompassed all areas of the, museum building and garden, with construction on the final phase completed in Spring 2016.
Architect: Isamu Noguchi (1985); renovation by Sage and Coombe Architects
