Is there a more appropriate place than an observatory to begin a stellar new chapter in the history of watchmaking?
Inaugurated in 1910 in Germany’s renowned watchmaking town of Glashütte, the neglected ruin of the observatory building was rebuilt by the company WEMPE some 100 years later. The establishment of the only testing facility
for chronometers according to the German industrial standard and of the WEMPE watchmaking school make Glashütte Observatory nowadays the perfect production site for the wristwatch chronometers of the WEMPE GLASHÜTTE i/SA collection.
The first watchmaker to land a moon on a man.

T Dear Reader,
he notion of a “real estate hotspot” is not something Old Master Goethe would have been familiar with. But when it comes to all other aspects of the city of Rome, we can confidently rely on the poet’s judgment. This center of the ancient world was a place of longing for him. It was here that he became conscious of his own humanity. Rome is not only steeped in history, it embodies it. It is a living work of art, a blend of dolce vita and magnificent architecture. Not only because of its ancient historical sites, but also because of its residential real estate.
On a par with Paris, London and New York, the Italian capital is today among the most attractive and sought-after metropolises for real estate investments. Prime locations inside the so-called Tridente – between the Piazza del Popolo and Piazza di S pagna – can fetch 20,000 euros per square meter. The market in the city’s premium real estate segment has proved robust, even during the global financial crisis and the Italian recession. Strong international demand gives the Roman real estate market a high degree of stability. For Engel & Völkers, this is a persuasive argument for expansion and for consolidating our presence in the city on the river Tiber. We recently opened one of the world’s biggest E&V offices there, in which more than 300 real estate agents will be working. It is also the most beautiful of our company’s offices. Housed in a centrally located palazzo, which is hundreds of years old, it is close to exciting landmarks like the Colosseum, the world-famous Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and the Trevi fountain. The E&V palazzo is a unique architectural gem, even by Roman standards. It boasts a historical vaulted basement and a hall of mirrors, which is adorned with ceiling paintings and is reminiscent of the Palace of Versailles. In my view, our new office in Rome not only represents a milestone in our strategic corporate objectives, but also epitomizes the fantastic real estate that is a hallmark of our brand and of this magazine. I am certain that if Goethe had come across our new E&V office while searching for a second home in the Via del Corso, would have loved to pay a visit. Today, the “Casa di Goethe” is a carefully looked-after museum. In order to help you get closer to your dream of acquiring your own property in Rome, or elsewhere, this edition of GG – once again – showcases a selection of the most stunning properties from around the world.

The Power of Heritage Not only in aristocratic circles is he admired as some kind of superstar. Charles Gordon Lennox, Earl of March and Kinrara, gave up his career in London as a successful advertising photographer when he was only 40, to return to West Sussex in the south of England and take over Goodwood, the 300-year-old family estate. With a fresh perspective, entrepreneurial spirit and a generous dose of creativity, the clever business man and father of five has transformed Goodwood over the past 20 years into a profitable brand incorporating 13 different businesses, and made his home world-famous for its spectacular motorsports events. This September, Lord March is once again hosting the Goodwood Revival, a remarkable festival that celebrates classic cars. Turn to page 38 for a rare audience with the charming aristocrat. Besides being a devoted vegan, famous socialite and designer of handbags, Cornelia Guest boasts an impressive pedigree. Her mother was C. Z. Guest, the legendary New York fashion icon admired for her exceptional style, and her father was related to Winston Churchill. In Milan, Guglielmo Miani talks about how he is taking the elegant family tailoring business, founded by his grandfather, into the 21st century, and, speaking of elegance, the Villa Tugendhat is regarded to this day as a jewel of modern architecture â&#x20AC;&#x201C; designed by the famous German-American architect Mies van der Rohe who built his masterpiece in the Czech Republic in 1930. We hope you enjoy the new GG!

A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME – WITH RIMOWA The 1920s marked the beginning of modern air travel and the golden age of Hollywood. In 1919, Hugo Junkers presented the world’s first all-metal commercial aircraft. It was made using the aircraft aluminum alloy discovered by Alfred Wilm in 1906. In 1950, RIMOWA presented its suitcase with the unmistakable grooved design made of the same material – at the time, it was the lightest suitcase in the world. RIMOWA was a real pioneer in the sector, starting the trend for lightweight luggage back then.

Tokyo – a Fascinating Labyrinth
Five centuries ago, Tokyo was called Edo and consisted of a palace and a couple of huts. Today, it is a 30-million-strong metropolis, both easygoing and well organized. The Tokyo subway is the world’s largest public transportation network, used by more than 40 million people every day. Everything in Tokyo functions with the utmost precision, but the best way to get to know Yanaka and Daikanyama wards, for instance, is on foot.
Konnichiwa, Tokyo! Around 35 million people live in the world’s biggest Zen rock garden – Tokyo. No city features bigger contrasts between tradition and sci-fi visions, between austere aesthetics and the manga look. It’s time to dive into the hustle and bustle, and explore at least a few neighborhoods of this incomparable metropolis on foot. Michaela Vieser reports.

“Carpets bring structure to a room, build bridges and create islands for us to settle our lives on.” ULRIKE BROERMANN
ULRIKE BROERMANN founded her company CAP in 1980. The interior designer from Düsseldorf focuses on exquisitely designed, high quality carpets (right: “Allegro Giardino Blu Verde,” above: “Quadra Grigio”) 1 Vintage look The carpets from the “Ombra” collection come in many hues and have a faded appearance. The brown model is called “Ombra Scuro Fango” 2 + 3 Decorative “Allegro Arancione” and “Allegro Sangue Rosso” feature delicate tendrils 4 Chessboard look “Quadra Grigio” is made up of squares of different shades of grey.
Finery Under Foot Carpets bring warmth, comfort and character to a room. Those by CAP are absolute masterpieces with an exquisite elegance.
Wooden and stone floors might be very attractive aesthetically, but they don’t automatically make a home particularly homely. A carpet on the other hand can be a wonderful way of introducing structure to any room: a carpet is laid on the floor, on this carpet stands a sofa, next to the sofa a side table and on it a lamp. It acts like an island in the room. There are many diﬀerent ways of applying this principle of adapting a carpet to fit an interior. Ulrike Broermann, owner of the Düsseldorf-based company CAP, combines classical elements found in oriental carpets with contemporary and minimalist influences in her designs. The philosophy behind the motif plays a key role for the interior designer, and one thing is also clear: a carpet is slowgrowing. Row by row and centimetre for centimetre, meaning the pattern emerges gradually like the printed page from an inkjet printer. CAP carpets are made of 100% natural materials, 80% cotton and 20% pure wool. There is an anti-slip layer on the rear side. The carpets, as robust as they are striking, are produced in nine diﬀerent sizes in Belgium. This “Made in Europe” pledge guarantees short delivery times and quality of the highest standard.

The Briton loves gray, crystal and spectacular presentations. design. My father was an artist and taught me to draw. Initially, I wanted to be an actor. When I was 17, I entered a design competition – mostly just for fun – and Vivienne Westwood happened to be one of the judges. I won the competition and asked her for her autograph. She wrote down her phone number instead, and I ended up doing an internship at her studio for several months.

The disciplines aren’t actually that dissimilar, especially when it comes to designing products. How would you describe your style? I like mixing traditional and modern designs. So, I naturally keep evolving as a designer, and I don’t really ever look back. I have adopted this concept of having seasonal collections from the world of fashion. One of the things I really like is the colUA or gray. And crystal.

LORD MARCH VILLA TUGENDHAT LARUSMIANI CORNELIA GUEST
PHOTO: ULI WEBER
Very Classy â&#x20AC;Ś
Men like Charles Gordon Lennox, Earl of March and Kinrara, who elegantly cultivate the values of their ancestors, have an irresistible appeal. Every year, the founder of the Goodwood motorsports events draws fans to his estate from all around the globe. Guglielmo Miani is transforming the family tailoring company Larusmiani from Milan into a global luxury brand, and Cornelia Guest, daughter of the famous C.Z. Guest, is continuing her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy.
Fueled by Passion Grown men get as nervous as little boys in his presence. Lord March, the force behind the spectacular Goodwood motorsport events, is hosting the Goodwood Revival again this September. How the remarkable aristocrat turned his family estate into a profitable mecca for car enthusiasts, what he learned from Stanley Kubrick and why he is so admired by Formula One legends and Hollywood stars. TEXT & PRODUCTION: Michaela Cordes窶ケHOTOS: Uli Weber
Lord March took over Goodwood at age 40, giving up a successful career in advertising photography to run the traditional family estate.

“I inherited this passion from my grandfather, Freddie. He was a phenomenal race car driver!” LORD MARCH
Every year, 300,000 fans attend the motorsports events hosted by Lord March. Coming to the Revival in costume is part of the fun.
41 041_GG_0415_GB 41
Collectors, car enthusiasts and fans accept Lord March’s invitation: “Here, fans can talk to famous drivers. This kind of access makes us unique.”
Iamourous guests have gathered at Hamiltons Gallery in London. Invited by
Tim Jeﬀeries, one of the world’s top gallerists for photography, they have come here to attend the opening of “Abstract and Intentional,” a show of works by Charles Gordon Lennox, Earl of March and Kinrara. Tom Cruise, Nick Mason, the drummer from Pink Floyd, and mega designer Marc Newson are among the celebrities admiring the blurred images of woodland. But what has really brought them all together here this evening, and what quickens the pulse of almost every man in the room, is another work of art Lord March has created: Goodwood!
The mecca for classic car enthusiasts in West Sussex that draws close to 300,000 passionate fans from all around the world to the south of England every year. Rich and poor, young and old, famous and unknown, they congregate twice a year at the magnificent, nearly 12,000 acre and 300-year-old family estate to pay homage to the thrill of motorsports, in June for the Festival of Speed and right now in September for the Goodwood Revival. Several weeks later I meet Lord March again. This time at his home, Goodwood House, where he looks after 13 diﬀerent family owned enterprises and where Rolls-Royce has also put up its headquarters. Lord March has just finished a business lunch. His handshake is warm, his suit classy and his laugh charmingly witty. Maybe that is why he is sometimes compared to the actor Hugh Grant. Lord March – you have spent your childhood growing up in Goodwood. What are your most vivid memories? “We didn’t live here permanently until I was about 12, but when I was a small boy, we used to come down twice a year to visit my grandparents. I loved it. Especially during Glorious Goodwood, the horse racing in July, when
the Queen would stay with us. It was grand. All those people rushing around in their red livery and shiny shoes (laughs). It was a big thing for a child to see her arriving in the large red helicopter. And early in the mornings, I would watch the racehorses exercise – hundreds of them, it looked fantastic!” But it was his grandfather’s great love for fast cars – not horses – that became his passion. “My grandfather Freddie (Editor’s note: Frederick Gordon Lennox, the 9th Duke of Richmond) was a successful race car driver and engineer before World War II who also built his own cars and airplanes. My grandmother was very keen for me to spend time with my grandfather so she bought tons of books and magazines about racing cars that my grandfather then gave to me as gifts (laughs).” In 1966, when young Charles was only ten years old, his grandfather decided to close down the famous race track on the property. A moment Lord March remembers until today. “I was heartbroken. The cars had become too fast, accidents were happening, and friends of his were getting hurt.” Was his vision of Goodwood today born then?
42 042_GG_0415_GB 42
Pure ’40s and ’60s nostalgia. Lord March negotiated with the local authorities for seven years before reopening his grandfather’s racetrack – and hosting the Revival. Unlike the annual Festival of Speed in June, visitors to the Revival attend the event in historical attire. And in the evening, all the cars that don’t date back to this period are removed.
“Jenson Button drove Alain Prost’s McLaren at Goodwood – moments like that are just magical!” LORD MARCH
What is this year’s Revival highlight? “A spectacular Ferrari race. And we’re celebrating Bruce McLaren, who lost his life here in 1970.”
45 045_GG_0415_GB 45
â&#x20AC;&#x153;My next challege? Taking Goodwood to our fans and engaging with them in the digital world.â&#x20AC;? LORD MARCH
Lord March with the AC The March that his grandfather built in 1937. In the background, Goodwood House, where the father of five lives.
“Not really. The thought of reopening the track came to me in 1991 just before I moved back home, because I needed fresh ideas to generate more revenue. The race track was just sitting there, and I thought to myself: Goodwood was so famous in the 1950s. Would it be possible to reignite that enthusiasm? Get people excited again? I soon realized that it was much more complicated. We had a lot of resistance from the local authorities, so we couldn’t do it immediately. That’s why I started with the Festival of Speed. Nobody could stop me from doing that. The problem with the old race track was that it was an existing one, and we had had a noise abatement order put on it in the early 1980s because it was used for Formula One testing. We negotiated for seven years, built banks all around and reduced the noise to five days a year. We finally reopened in 1998.” In the meantime, the first Festival of Speed opened in June 1993, the only event in the world combining all the genres of motorsport. With Bonhams, Honda and Aston Martin as sponsors on board, Lord March hosted his very first Festival for less than 100,000 pounds. Today, the costs exceed 10 million. “That shows just how much we have grown. At the time we advertised in local newspapers and via the radio. I remember expecting to feel lucky if 2000 people turned up. But when we opened, 20,000 came streaming onto the grounds! We were totally surprised and didn’t know where to put all the cars. We did not even have enough tickets.” hat makes your Goodwood events so unique? “I think it’s the access. Everyone can go right up to the cars and can talk to the drivers. We have collectors, car enthusiasts and fanatics coming here. From some of the richest people in the world to some who have struggled to get a ticket. What unites them is their shared enthusiasm for cars. It’s not about money, not about gambling. The Revival is even more like that, because everybody dresses up in a period theme of the ’40s and ’50s. It may sound weird, but it’s an amazing thing. Here the guests aren’t just spectators buying a ticket and observing like you would watch a football match. Everybody becomes a part of it.” Like some famous Formula One drivers. Which ones haven’t you welcomed to Goodwood yet? “I hate to say this, but Michael Schumacher is the only world champion apart from Nico Rosberg who hasn’t been to Goodwood yet. Jean Todt was planning to bring him along this year, a terrible thing, his accident. But otherwise we have had all of the Formula One teams and drivers here. They love the old cars. We have some great footage of Jenson Button driving around in Alain Prost’s McLaren. Afterwards, Button told me that he could remember watching Prost drive that car on TV when he was 6 years old. Moments like that are magical!” Many famous celebrities, including Jay Leno, Nick Mason, Tim Allen, Ralph Lauren and Jerry Seinfeld are avid car collectors. At the opening of your show in London I saw Tom Cruise come up to you and give you a big hug (He smiles). “Tom loves his cars and airplanes. Sometimes famous people approach us and ask us to drive a certain car at the Festival. And we do our best to make it happen.”
t may encourage young people to learn that Lord March quit school at age 16,
leaving Eton to become a photographer. But before going to London, he had to recover from a serious car accident. What happened? “I didn’t enjoy school very much at all (laughs), but I loved photography and cars. One day, before I was actually allowed to drive, I took my mother’s car up the hill we now use for the Festival of Speed, turned it around and had a bad accident. I hurt my legs and was on my back for four months. I could hardly move for about a year. But as soon as I was better I went to London, following a girl I was in love with, and moved to Kings Road.” One of his first assignments as a young photographer was working for the famous director Stanley Kubrick. How did you land such a coveted job? “A friend of mine heard that Kubrick was looking for a still photographer for the film Barry Lyndon, and told me to go for it. The job itself
was not so important, but I learned a lot from Kubrick. Working with him taught me that you don’t have to compromise and you should always aim as high as you can imagine.” One year later, only just 18, the young Lord traveled to Somalia and Kenya, where he accompanied a group of local doctors as a photo journalist. Back in London, he started working on high-end advertising campaigns for brands such as De Beers, Benson & Hedges, Silk Cut and Glenfiddich. Twenty-two years later, when his father asked him to take over the family estate, the dynamic aristocrat left swinging London and a successful career behind. Were there ever any moments when you struggled with your future role? “Not really, because I grew up with it. I knew it was my responsibility. Many people think this system – the eldest son inherits everything – is unfair, but it is the only way to ensure that the place survives. But it is funny how, looking back, I realize how many of the people I met during my career as a photographer helped me later on with my work here, like in relation to how to position our brand.” With the growing popularity of his events, the classic car market has become super hot. Prices for vintage cars are skyrocketing. In June 2013 a W196 Mercedes Grand Prix car sold for 19.6 million British pounds – the highest amount at the time that a car has ever sold at auction. And Sotheby’s has just announced that it has acquired a 25 percent stake in the car auction house RM Auctions. How much impact do you have on such developments? “We certainly see that we have an impact on prices when we put a race on for a particular car. For example, we created a race for the Ford GT40, and the value of that car has gone up a hell of a lot since. People come here to share their cars with a broader audience. That shared experience is what it’s all about and that makes the whole idea of collecting cars even more attractive.” ut Lord March is not only admired for his vision and his ability to bring speed and style together. He also turned Goodwood into a thriving economic success. When he took over, the family estate had an annual turnover of 8 million. Today 650 employees are generating 70 million, the biggest share coming from the car events. Luxury companies like Bonhams, Cartier, Veuve Clicquot, Rolls-Royce, Rolex and Ferrari are lining up as sponsors to support the prestigious events. “It takes a certain type of commercial brain to turn an asset into a brand, and such minds are not necessarily found among the aristocracy,” the British edition of Town & Country marveled. What is your secret? “It is not a secret, we just need to be profitable. We are not going to survive otherwise. When I took over I could not start from scratch. I had to work with what we had which was already here. For centuries it has always been our family culture to share the family’s passions with the rest of the world. And all of the activities are authentic to the place. The first Duke bought the house for foxhunting in 1697. His son loved cricket, so we have the earliest existing written rules of cricket in Britain in the world. The Duke and the King of England founded the horse races in 1802. Clearly we also own enterprises that are more difficult economically, such as our organic farm, but we would never contract it out or not farm it. We are living in the middle of it, it’s an important part of the story of Goodwood and something my mother was very passionate about, as is my wife now. Our milk, we just discovered, is perfect for coffee. Every day we send a whole tanker to all the independent coffee houses in London.” What are your dreams for Goodwood’s future? “My eldest son is now 20, and studying Theology at Oxford. I want him to have his own career before he takes over. My next challenge is to work out how we take this to the billion people who can’t come to Goodwood, how we can engage with them virtually. There is a huge amount we can do with our content and how we use that digitally. I would love to make it possible for everyone who is passionate about Goodwood to be a part of it. MC

Van der Rohe’s Masterpiece “This is beauty, this is truth,” the entrepreneur Fritz Tugendhat is said to have gushed, delighted by his completed residence near Brno in 1930. Today, the building – with its flat roof, delicate metal columns, refined materials and open, merging interiors – is considered to be the most famous European project by German-American architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, as well as a milestone of modern architecture.

Mies van der Rohe conceived the Villa Tugendhat in Brno as a complete work of art. In addition to the furniture, details like fittings and light switches were designed especially for the building, which has even been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The dark wooden furniture and doors contrast with the gleaming white walls and the light flooring. An important design element is the frosted glass that subdivides the house into living and functional areas. The large garden also forms part of the overall architectural concept. The architect, a native of the German city of Aachen, is famous for his maxim “less is more” which stresses the importance of concentrating on the essentials.
“I don’t know any space in modern architecture quite as overwhelming as this one.” DANIELA HAMMER-TUGENDHAT IN 2012

As you approach the icon ˇ ernopolní of modern architecture designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe on C Street, walking up toward it from the tram stop near the Brno Children’s Hospital, you may even overlook the famous villa that was built between 1929 and 1930. “The Tugendhat House does not create much excitement as you approach it. It stretches out flatly along the way,” wrote German literary scholar Gotthart Wunberg in his essay “House T.” When you walk in the front door, which is hidden behind a curved wall futed this, saying that she had “never had the feeling that the rooms of frosted glass, you find yourself in a sober entrance hall.

There are no less than three winter sports regions – Park City Resort, Deer Valley and The Canyons – located to the north and east of the city, which is also famous for the Sundance Film Festival. It is here that Jeffrey Katzenberg, producer of such blockbusters as “Shrek” and “Madagascar”, has his ski lodge, which has to be seen to be believed for its sheer size and style. Take a look!

The Art Fair The 56th Venice Art Biennale has been running since May, but the pavilions with exhibits from 89 countries remain open to visitors until November 22.
The work entitled “Fällt von der Wand nicht” (“Not falling off the wall”) by Georg Baselitz consists of eight canvasses of upside-down nudes.

confronted with a wall. On it, there is an introductory text by the artistic director Okwui Enwezor, which explains what this year’s show “All the World’s Futures” is about: “Rather than having one overarching theme, there are three intersecting filters.” You then enter the central pavilion – a huge exhibition hall in the Giardini, where you encounter a work, which, according to Enwezor, is one of these filters: “Das Kapital Oratorio.” Architect David Adjaye designed an arena space in which readings from Karl Marx’s main work are taking place. A completely different message is conveyed by “High Visibility Burqa,” a performance by Italian artist Marco Biagini, who had a woman in a fluorescent burka stroll through the streets of Venice. Artist Katharina Grosse also made use of powerful colors. For her piece “Untitled Trumpet” she spray-painted a brickwalled hall covered in sheets. The result is a fantastic rubble-strewn grotto in the Arsenale, where art usually hangs in neat rows. Also exhibited at the Arsenale is “Fällt von der Wand nicht” (“Not falling off the wall”) by Georg Baselitz. It consists of eight canvases, each of which features the image of an upside-down nude. If you believe the rumors, it will soon be hanging in the Palazzo Grassi – because François Pinault allegedly purchased it for roughly nine million dollars. The French art collector invited almost 1,500 guests to a private dinner at the Fondazione Cini. Paddle8 and W magazine on the other hand hosted a sunset cocktail cruise followed by a dinner in honor of Anne Pasternak. Among the guests on the sailing boat were artist Kara Walker, Fendi heiress Delfina Delettrez and art collector Maria Baibakova. Italian fashion label Marni took advantage of the Biennale to celebrate its 20th birthday with an exhibition entitled “Becoming Marni” at the San Gregorio Abbey. On show are 100 vibrant wooden sculptures by the Brazilian artist Véio, whose shapes and colors are reminiscent of the label’s signature look. Among those who attended were Gianni and Consuelo Castiglioni, Renzo Rosso, Giovanna Battaglia, Rolf Sachs, Franca Sozzani and Ellen von Unwert. SK

Splendid Boats Ahoy! The 28th edition of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge saw the largest and most majestic classic sailing yachts compete against each other, all over the globe.
ll around the world, a total of 80 “grand dames” of the seas took part in this year’s Panerai Classic Challenge, the most elegant regatta of 2015. The magnificent vessels were made of wood or metal, were built between 1916 and 2014, and hailed from Italy, France, Spain, Switzerland, England, Ireland and Panama. What makes the Panerai Classic Challenge so unique? The elegant Florentine-Swiss watch manufacturer organizes as many as nine yacht races, starting with the Antigua 4 Classic Yacht Regatta in April and concluding with the Régates Royales in Cannes in September. The latter is an impressive race, because only classic and vintage yachts compete in it. The name dates back to the year 1929, and is reminiscent of a time when royal yachts would take part in the race. The very first regatta in Cannes was organized in 1863 by the Société de Régates de Cannes. The prize awarded to each of this year’s winners is a stunning Officine Panerai timepiece.

Spaghetti was her secret weapon. Sophia Loren, raised in Naples, went out into the big, wide world, but whenever she was cooking, she returned to her roots. That’s because the diva cooked with love and Italian gusto. Her cookbook, which was hugely popular back in 1970, is now being republished for a new generation. Sophia Loren’s favorite recipes, tips and tricks, as well as stories of cozy dinners with famous stars are all on the menu. Buon appetito!

A Brand New Home for Art
TEXT: UTA ABENDROTH; PHOTOS: STEFANO GOLDBERG (1)
Renzo Piano’s work is often imbued with industrial charm. The latest example of this is the Whitney Museum in downtown Manhattan.
t is New York City’s first new art museum building of comparable size since 1959, when the Guggenheim building opened its doors. The nine-story Whitney Museum, designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, rises up asymmetrically behind the High Line, a decommissioned elevated railway that was turned into an urban green space in 2009. Because of its mechanical appearance, which includes the prominent ventilation pipes on the roof, the building reflects the industrial character of the surrounding Meatpacking District. The Whitney Museum of American Art is one of the most important museums of contemporary art, boasting works by Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Jackson Pollock. Until recently, it was based on the Upper East Side in a building designed by Marcel Breuer (which will be preserved), but it had simply run out of space for what amounted to nearly 14,000 works of art. Renzo Piano’s newly completed structure provides roughly 20,000 square meters of exhibition space, as well as spectacular views of Greenwich Village. Its cantilevered entrance projects all the way onto Gansevoort Street, creating a public square. On the frontage facing the High Line, it has a series of terraces, which are open to visitors and designed to accommodate future art installations. Renzo Piano says: “The key design principles of the building are openness and accessibility. Essentially, it is a piazza.” UA
