The new 50,000 ft² museum and screening facility on Liberty Island, New York, USA, had to be iconic. The building would sit in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty and host millions of visitors every year. It also had to be durable enough to sustain that level of traffic, and to handle the increasingly destructive storms and waves that periodically batter the East Coast. Precast concrete could meet both of these goals, providing a durable and flexible material that could accommodate complex designs while delivering a sustainable, low-maintenance structure that will last for generations.
