David Zwirner, 20th Street in New York


Coinciding with the gallery’s 20-year anniversary, David Zwirner opened a new five-storied exhibition and project space at 537 West 20th Street in New York in February 2013.


Designed by Selldorf Architects, the building incorporates approximately 30,000 square feet over five stories. Built according to the highest environmental standards, it will be the first commercial art gallery to receive LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. Its outdoor spaces have been created by Piet Oudolf, who designed the gardens and plantings on the nearby High Line. Also contributing to the project are Renfro Design Group (for architectural lighting) and Atelier Ten, engineering design consultants and engineers. Read the cover story in Architectural Record.
