The Noguchi Museum, New York

The Noguchi Museum, New York

What: The Noguchi Museum was founded and designed by internationally-renowned American artist Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988), for the display of what he considered to be representative examples of his life’s work. According to Wikipedia, in its obituary for Noguchi, The New York Times called him “a versatile and prolific sculptor whose earthy stones and meditative gardens bridging East and West have become landmarks of 20th-century art”.

Location: 9-01 33rd Rd, Queens, NY 11106, USA (Google Maps)

Notes: 

  • the favorite museum I’ve visited in New York
  • inspiring sculptures, landscape architecture, interiors
  • calm, minimalistic, textural
  • not too large
  • fantastic garden, so if you can, pick a dry day for the visit
  • a lovely museum shop and cafe (not suitable for work)
