Sundaram Tagore Gallery in New York City by Katz Architecture

The Sundaram Tagore Gallery is devoted to the exchange of ideas between Western and non-‐Western cultures. In keeping with its mission, the Gallery sought to bridge dualities when they moved into the ground floor of a manufacturing building in West Chelsea. The new space, which last served as a taxi garage, had to be completely overhauled to serve as a platform for cross-‐cultural discussion through visual art, poetry, literature, performance art, film and music.
The backdrop for this discussion was a dialogue of contrasts -‐ existing and pre-‐existing, industrial and natural, textured and smooth, old and new. The design attempted to reveal the history of the space, to bridge past and present and create an environment within which artwork can hover.
