The Whitney Museum houses one of the world's foremost collections of twentieth-century American art. It owes its striking granite presence at the southeast corner of Madison Avenue and 75th Street to the Hungarian-born, Bauhaus-trained architect Marcel Breuer (1902-1981). To design a third home for the Museum—which had gradually migrated northward from its original location on West 8th Street to West 54th Street—Breuer worked with Hamilton Smith, creating a strong modernist statement in a neighborhood of traditional limestone, brownstone, and brick row houses and postwar apartment buildings. Considered somber, heavy, and even brutal at the time of its completion in 1966 ("an inverted Babylonian ziggurat," according to one critic), Breuer's building is now recognized as daring, strong, and innovative. It has come to be recognized as one of New York City’s most notable buildings and identified with the Whitney Museum's approach to art.

Very Beutifull
New York, United States 07-May-13
The point of the Whitney is not to enter it, but to leave it. The disconnected canopy on the street seems odd on entry. But on exit, one first leaves the building, goes outside over the bridge and then, re-enters the building for brief moment when passing under the canopy. The canopy is not in entry, as it first appears, but an exit which very dramatically says 'goodbye.' A touch of sheer genious, in my opinion.
