The New Museum Board of Trustees announced Wednesday that OMA’s Rem Koolhaas and Shoehei Shigematsu will design the museum’s new building at 231 Bowery as part of the institution’s expansion. The new structure, purchased by the contemporary art museum in 2008, will link the museum’s Sanaa-designed building and double their footprint on the Bowery, adding 50,000-square-feet of space. OMA’s first public project in New York City, 231 Bowery is expected to break ground in 2019.
