Text description provided by the architects.

In 1993, Storefront commissioned a collaborative building project by
artist Vito Acconci and architect Steven Holl.
The project replaced the
existing facade with a series of twelve panels that pivot vertically or
horizontally to open the entire length of the gallery directly onto the
street.
The project blurs the boundary between interior and exterior

and, by placing the panels in different configurations, creates a
multitude of different possible facades.
Now regarded as a contemporary
architectural landmark, Storefrontís faÁade is visited by artists,
architects and students from around the world..
