Museum of the City of New York Rebranding

As part of a major renovation of the Museum of the City of New York, Cooper Joseph Studio was tasked with enlivening the core areas of the building. The goal was to infuse the key public spaces with soul and a feeling of engagement. Focusing on the rotunda, entry, and second-floor central open space, Cooper Joseph's intent was to create a bold, unified experience that would draw visitors up the circular stair to the galleries and provide a place to gather and enjoy while visiting the Museum of the City of New York.
