08.06.2021A centre for transatlantic exchange in New York

Following an international design competition, the Federal Government of Germany has appointed David Chipperfield Architects to convert the former headquarters of the Goethe Institute in New York into a new centre for transatlantic dialogue. The existing Fifth Avenue-building, a six-storey townhouse from 1906, will be restored and renovated, adding sensitive interventions within the original building fabric to accommodate the new social and cultural programme. The project, 1014 – An open house, was designed as an open meeting place while preserving the domestic character of the building. It is expected to complete in late 2025.
