Join lead architect Marc Tsurumaki of LTL Architects as he takes you on a tour of the design development and construction history of Poster House, the only museum in the U.S. dedicated to posters.

Opening in 2019 and occupying the space that once housed Tekserve, the museum design considers that posters are intended for the street and uses the length of the space to evoke a sidewalk, playing with industrial materials. Gesturing to the space’s history, the design incorporates several existing features including the exposed brick walls, barrel vaults and cast-iron columns. These elements create a dialogue with the new architecture, blending old and new, playful and serious, and embody an embrace of the poster’s unique identity as both commerce and art, public information and cultural artifact. The museum design received the AIANY Design Award for interiors in 2019.
