Museum of sex. New York City
MUSEUM OF SEX | 233 FIFTH AVE. MANHATTAN | NEW YORK
AUGUST 2002 | In collaboration with CLEANROOM Inc.
Commissioned as the exclusive design firm for the Museum of Sex, Cleanroom converted a five storey building on 5th Avenue in New York into a complete 12,000 sq. ft. sex museum with three galleries a bookstore and administrative offices.
The facade of the museum was created as a temporary installation to celebrate the museum opening in the fall of 2002. The facade materials consisted of a nylon power mesh (a durable textile that sports-bras are made of) stretched over undulating aluminum ribs. The dynamic Facade remained a key feature for the museum and transformed 5th Avenue for the first year of the museums existence.
