Park Avenue Armory Design by Herzog & de Meuron


Project: Park Avenue Armory
Designed by: Herzog and de Meuron
Location: New York
Website: www.herzogdemeuron.com
“Originally constructed between 1877 and 1881, and occupying an entire city block, the Armory houses one of most important collection of 19th-century interiors in the United States—with eighteen rooms designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany, Stanford White, the Herter Brothers, and Pottier & Stymus, among other prominent designers from the era—as well as the soaring Wade Thompson Drill Hall, an engineering feat in its time and one of the largest unobstructed spaces in the city today.
Designed Herzog & de Meuron, with Platt, Byard, Dovell, White Architects, LLP, serving as Executive Architect, the current $200-million renovation and restoration project enables Park Avenue Armory to support a range of visual and performing arts programming in advancement of its mission. The design plan embraces the history, craftsmanship, and the inherent contrast of the Armory’s spaces, from the exuberance of its period room interiors to the strength and confidence of its soaring drill hall.”
