This Is The Best New Museum?

New York’s new New Museum is “a freeze-dried packet of desiccated minimalism. It is in no way miraculous. We are in more trouble than I thought if this is the project that is supposed to restore faith in New York City or point the way toward the future of architecture. The most that can be said in its favor is that in the New Museum, as in the firm’s other projects, SANAA raises provocative questions about the value of minimalism in architecture.”
