Whitney Story

Whitney Stories Video:
Renzo Piano
Feb 14, 2014

Architect Renzo Piano designed the Whitney Museum's future home, which will open to the public in 2015. In this Whitney Stories video, Piano articulates the philosophy behind the building's design and describes the experiences envisioned for its spaces, from its expansive galleries to its city-facing terraces.

This video is part of an ongoing series which sheds light on the Whitney's plans through conversations with artists, Whitney staff, and integral members of the construction team—view more Whitney Stories videos below.
