paul MECOMBER: The Whitney Museum, by architect Marcel Breuer, is an iconic cultural artifact of New York City, and serves as the identity of the institution of the museum itself. This identity has been thrown into a state of turmoil as a result of plans to relocate from Madison Avenue to the southern terminal end of the Highline Park. Seeing this as an opportunity, this project seeks to re-imagine the problems associated with iconic identity in museum design by twining Breuer’s Whitney on the new Highline site.
