In 2001, after over 70 years in Manhattan, SculptureCenter purchased a former trolley repair shop with an enclosed outdoor lot in Long Island City, Queens. Built in 1907, the building rests in the heart of a rapidly developing neighborhood minutes from Midtown Manhattan. The initial renovation was designed by artist/designer Maya Lin with the understanding that an expansion would ultimately be necessary to fully meet SculptureCenter's needs. The project has been designed by Andrew Berman Architect, who has designed award-winning projects for institutions including the Center for Architecture, The New York Public Library, and MoMA PS1. The plan honors the dramatic steel and brick structure of the existing building while creating a stronger street presence through the introduction of a limited vocabulary of new materials including plywood and corten steel.
