Cultured Magazine Reports on the new Gagosian Gallery

July 15, 2016 Buildings

“I design spaces for art with similar considerations, whether the work is sold or not. Good spaces start with good proportion, scale and relationship between materials and light. Flexibility plays an even larger role in a gallery, as the space must work well for various types of art and activities. We paid lots of attention to the quality of light in San Francisco, wanting to make sure the gallery space works as well in cloudy days as sunny ones. The sense of place is so clear around there and we want to celebrate and enhance it. It [Gagosian Gallery] does not really respond to SFMOMA’s new architecture. The gallery responds to its own historic legacy and context as a building.” – Kulapat Yantrasast
