A Pritzker present for New Yorkers

In honor of its Priztker Prize-winning architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa of Tokyo-based SANAA, the New Museum will offer free general admission and tours of its facilities on Wednesday, 6 May from noon to 6 p.m.

Architecture experts, many of who were on the building’s original core architecture team, including Jonas Elding, Florian Idenburg and Toshihiro Oki, will lead the tours. The museum will also open the seventh-floor Sky Room (usually open on Saturday and Sundays only) to allow visitors the opportunity to experience panoramic views of the Bowery.

"We are pleased to open our doors for free for locals and tourists alike in celebration of SANAA and their design for the New Museum. SANAA's stacked, shifting boxes reflect the nature of contemporary art and Bowery neighborhood as open, dynamic, and ever-changing," said Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director. "It is remarkable that this storied neighborhood, with historic highs and lows now has concentrations of buildings by four Pritzker Prize-winning architects: Norman Foster (257 Bowery), Thom Mayne (41 Cooper Union at Bowery), Herzog & de Meuron (40 Bond Street at Bowery), and SANAA's New Museum."

SAANA will be awarded the Pritzker Prize in a ceremony on New York’s historic Ellis Island on 17 May.
