The Morgan Library

The Pierpont Morgan Library, an exquisite cultural treasure chest in Murray Hill, would reorient, expand and draw together its campus of historic buildings with three unmistakably modern steel-and-glass pavilions designed by Renzo Piano. The project is so ambitious it would require the Morgan to close for two years.

The Morgan Library would move its entrance from 36th Street to Madison Avenue, create a glass-enclosed piazza in the middle of the block, expand its gallery space, build a new auditorium and reading room, replace its office wing, sink a new vault deep into bedrock and add a cubic structure in the yard between J. Pierpont Morgan’s original library and the later annex, both landmarks.
