Eva Jiricna designs ‘dazzling’ glass gallery for New York museum

  • Comment

Eva Jiricna has revealed plans to transform the Henry Luce III Centre for the Study of American Culture in New York

Jiricna’s first scheme in the American city will transform the museum’s fourth floor creating a 280m2 ‘centrepiece’ gallery designed to display its collection of Tiffany lamps.

The darkened two-storey gallery will be accessed by a large ‘dramatic’ glass staircase in the centre.  

The work at the Central Park museum will also include a new centre for the study of women’s history, theatre space for workshops, classes and small conferences, and gallery spaces.

Pam Schafler, chairman of the board of the New-York Historical Society, said: ‘The renovated, refurbished, and reimagined fourth floor will be a transformative next chapter in the extraordinary and ever-expanding story of the New-York Historical Society, New York’s first museum.’

The space is set to open in early 2017.
