Adjaye Associates’ Interactive Spy Museum SPYSCAPE to Open in NYC

David Adjaye has revealed its plans for a new museum of the history of espionage, SPYSCAPE, which will feature significant interactive content. SPYSCAPE will cover 60,K SqFt, and will be located near Times Square. For the project, our friends at Adjaye Associates draw inspiration from spaces occupied by various spy organizations of the world; the interiors will resemble a small town with spaces unfolding beneath a vaulted canopy. SPYSCAPE will also be notable for its variously unique lighting strategies, and the use of materials such as smoked glass, fiber cement, acoustic paneling, and mirror-/weather-polished steel to foster a sense of wonder and observation. Says Lucy Tilley, Associate Director for Adjaye Associates, “We have been able to challenge the traditional museum typology with a design that creates a new model of visitor experience which straddles the physical and digital worlds.”
