An extension of Magazzino Italian Art, a gallery in Cold Springs, New York, designed by Spanish architects Alberto Campo Baeza and Miguel Quismondo will open to the public in September.
The 13,000 sq ft Robert Olnick Pavilion is located on a 3.5-acre plot on a hillside. There are two galleries on the ground floor and a third on the second storey that will be dedicated to Murano glass and ceramics. There will also be a 1,500 sq ft space for screenings, lectures, panel discussions and other public events.
The design for the pavilion is made from industrial materials which complement the postwar and contemporary art. It will open with inaugural exhibitions on Mario Schifano and Carlo Scarpa, as well as a special project on Ettore Spalletti.
Alberto Campo Baeza said: “Not unlike the excitement of birth, it is with great anticipation that we deliver this second building to the museum.”
The architectural team won the design competition in 2020.
