Statue of Liberty Museum

“The vision for the new Statue of Liberty Museum arose from an essential idea: merging architecture with landscape and seeing the building as an extension of Liberty Island’s park. The museum’s defining gesture is the lifting of the park itself, extending vistas rather than ending them, and creating a new, naturalized habitat in place of a traditional building. The angular forms and spaces are shaped by expansive views and the irregularity of the water’s edge. Materials native to the Island, including Stony Creek granite, bronze, plaster, and a variety of native vegetation, enrich interior and exterior spaces. These same materials were used to build the Statue of Liberty and Fort Wood. The museum utilizes best practices for sustainability and features a green roof-scape and bird-safe glass.” F X FOWLE

I was just there last weekend and it’s coming along. I see no reason this shouldn’t open in 2019. Here’s an Earthcam shot from today:
