Storefront for Art and Architecture

Latitude: 40°43'17.22"N
Longitude: 73°59'49.30"W

This facade is interesting, not for its magnificence, but for its simplicity and functionality. The Storefront for Art and Architecture definitely represents an anti-gloss idiom. Don't be deceived by the graffiti, this location is in the heart of SoHo, and is prime real estate. Reminiscent of the kind of semi-operable temporary construction walls that GC's build everyday, it is certainly not an engineering feat. I enjoyed this location, nonetheless, as it has a relaxed neighborhood feel, a welcome contrast to the intensity of the midtown architectural proving ground.
