The New Drawing Center: Charcoal and Wash on Paper, 2006

Downtown Express carries a story on the Drawing Center’s proposed new building at the South Street Seaport. The rendering (reproduced here) is a little blurry, but the writing is clear enough:

Designs of the two-story structure include a rippled, maritime rooftop and slatted windows. The ground floor is set back, creating a large open space outside. The first floor of the building would likely include extensive public space, such as a cafe, bookstore, educational programs and a public reception area.
