Latest stories from New York City

The architecture of the five-story Kenneth C. Griffin Exploration Atrium in the new Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation is inspired by natural Earth processes of wind and water and the ways in which they shape landscapes that are exciting to explore. The Griffin Atrium serves as a gateway into the Museum from Columbus Avenue, featuring skylights for natural illumination and alluring sightlines that invite visitors to explore various levels and galleries, including the new Susan and Peter J. Solomon Family Insectarium and Louis V. Gerstner, Jr. Collections Core. Located on the second floor, the landing at the top of the staircase opens up to the full scope of the Kenneth C. Griffin Atrium, with views of the Gilder Center’s new engaging exhibits.
