The recently reopened Dia Art Foundation in Chelsea honors the institution’s architectural legacy, re-establishes its New York presence, and foregrounds the artist’s vision. Continuing Dia’s history of revitalizing buildings for contemporary art, the design honors the industrial vernacular of each structure and of the neighborhood itself, presenting the now-contiguous three adjacent buildings within a unified composition. The renewed Dia Chelsea creates a seamless experience for visitors, allowing the public to fully engage with and experience the art within the spaces.
Join the client, architects, and an artist for a conversation on the project’s origins, collaborative design process, the new space’s impact on artists, and Dia Chelsea’s resonance since reopening in 2021.
