Institute of Photography

Fall 2009 | Professor Michael Petrus



The NYC Institute of Photography acts as both a place of learning and gallery. The urban site, only 25ft. wide, proved to be a challenge. The narrow footprint necessitated a taller structure to accommodate the building's extensive program. The program visually manifests itself on the building's façade as a collage of distinct spaces. As a living composition, the building's façade is constantly shifting based on the activity inside. The building also features sustainable elements including shading systems and passive ventilation.
