Martha A. and Robert S. Rubin Pavilion and Lobby

Redesigned in 2004 by Polshek Partnership Architects, this modern, elegant space features an expansive sheer glass pavilion that overlooks our welcoming public plaza. The brick piers dividing the pavilion and adjacent lobby are the same bricks that once enclosed our five front doors, excavated, restored, and permanently exposed in the space. This grand pavilion artfully melds the historical and contemporary components of the building.
