Just opened in September in New York, the Sperone Westwater art gallery, the work of Foster + Partners architects. Surely this is an amazing building by design, innovation and concern for the environment where it was built.

Surrounded by old and characteristic buildings of Bowery in New York, Sperone Westwater join into this environment and create a new architecture in the landscape. A building of clean lines, neutral color it abuses of innovation in the interior, creating a mobile exhibition space, which connects several floors of the gallery. This kind of red elevator who looks outside, promises to create a new symbol of this district and hope inspire artists to new possibilities that can explore on the gallery.

"The concept for Sperone Westwater represents both a response to the Bowery’s dynamic urban character and a desire to rethink the way in which we engage with art in the setting of a gallery. The moving gallery animates the exterior of the building and creates a bold vertical element within." - Sir Norman Foster
