On May 1, 2015, the Whitney Museum in New York, dedicated to exhibiting modern art in America, reopened on the west side of Manhattan in a building designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano.

The new home of the museum, was built in the Meatpacking District, after his former home on the Upper East Side, was transferred to the Guggenheim Museum. With 67,000 m2, the new museum doubles the exhibition space of the old site, with open and closed spaces, which offer panoramic views to the east of the city; Westward, the Hudson River; and south of the Statue of Liberty.
