Whitney Downtown Museum
New York architects Axis Mundi have re-imagined the Whitney Downtown Museum with a self-initiated proposal that is raw and provocative, and as bold in spirit as the original Breuer building on Madison Avenue. In the early 1960s, when Marcel Breuer received the commission for the Whitney, he asked “What should a museum look like, a museum in Manhattan? Surely it should work, it should fulfill its requirements, but what is its relationship to the New York landscape?

MoMA Tower Alternative, New York, USA
Date built: 2009-

MoMA Tower Alternative
The New York City architects office proposes a conceptual alternative to business-as-usual, choosing the site of the proposed 53W53rd, among the city’s largest skyscraper proposals in one of the most overbuilt parts of Midtown to test their ideas. Their design suggests new expressive possibilities for an urbanism of difference rather than of homogeneity. Architect John Beckmann sees this as the time to rethink the tall buildings that have become synonymous with New York City’s identity.

Polyhedra, Palisades House, New Jersey, USA
Date built: 2010-

A crystalline polyhedron shaped residence is cantilevered over the edge of a 200 million year old cliff in New Jersey. The Palisades, are a line of steep cliffs along the west side of the lower Hudson River in northeastern New Jersey and southern New York in the United States. The cliffs stretch north from Jersey City to near Nyack, New York.

Date built: 2011-

Strasbourg Cathedral Building
Axis Mundi was invited to submit a proposal for a new cathedral for the city of Strasbourg, France. The design is composed of a series of unfolded arches which rest on a submerged “Latin Cross” floor plan. A bas-relief of an abstracted Gothic cathedral will emerge on the eastern facade when the sun rises, and will gradually disappear during the course of the day.
