Breakthrough Space at the Center for Architecture

Following the expansion of the Center for Architecture at the end of 2011, gallery space is now available for rental in the Center's Breakthrough Space for special events and installations.

The Breakthrough Space gallery is the premier location to engage architects and the public in timely and cutting edge architecture and design, through installations and programming.

The 1,200 square foot space has a dedicated entrance just south of the Center's main entrance, and is connected to the Center through a dramatic "breakthrough" portal.

Installation duration varies, as short as a one day trade show or product launch, to a month long exhibition showcase. Download more information and floorplans.
