Hauser & Wirth announced today that its new building at 542 West 22nd Street, designed by Selldorf Architects, will open on October 6. This 36,000 square foot, 5-story gallery is Hauser & Wirth’s first purpose-built, ground-up building. Selldorf Architects has collaborated with Hauser & Wirth on its spaces internationally since the founding of the gallery in 1992. As with all of Selldorf’s previous designs for Hauser & Wirth’s galleries, the goal is to create strong, well-proportioned spaces that place art at the forefront of the visitor’s experience. Here, the ground floor and second floor spaces that front the street feature 16-foot and 12-foot tall glass doors that completely fold away, opening the façade up to further engage the public with the art on view.
