On Thursday, city officials unveiled FXFOWLE’s design for a new, 26,000-square-foot museum to join the State of Liberty monument on Liberty Island. A rendering of the $70 million project, which will replace the small exhibition space currently at the base of the statue, shows a freestanding structure comprised of glass, granite and concrete rising up from the ground. The museum is slated to be completed in 2019.
