Storefront for Art and Architecture

“Founded in 1982, Storefront for Art and Architecture is a nonprofit organization committed to the advancement of innovative positions in architecture, art and design. The Storefront Gallery is located in a unique triangular ground-level space at the corner of Kenmare Street and Lafayette in the Chinatown/Little Italy/SoHo area of New York City. The unusual conditions of the gallery space, from its triangular floor plan to the unique access to the street created by the Vito Acconci/Steven Holl façade, have made the Storefront Gallery an architectural landmark in New York City.”

When I began working for Storefront for Art and Architecture, I instantly witnessed the constant reconfiguration of its unique floor plan to display groundbreaking exhibitions. It became apparent that the website, like the gallery, needed to be flexible and adaptable to the evolution and growth of the institution. In addition, the content needed to be easily updatable by staff members.

I designed an interface that could quickly adapt its hierarchy as the needs of the organization changed over time. The website has held up under three distinct visionary directors.
