Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill, New York – Herzog & de Meuron

“The east end’s new Parrish Art Museum is an unexpected monument.” – Justin Davidson, New York Magazine

Located on the north side of Montauk Highway, the Parrish is a horizontal structure nestled discreetly in the landscape, consisting of two parallel wings joined by a central circulation spine running the length of the building. The building has been sited to take advantage of natural north light. The poured-in-place concrete walls are deeply recessed under a long and elegant white corrugated metal roof and incorporate large sections of glass that permit views through the museum and into the surrounding landscape.
