Edward Durrell Stone’s 2 Columbus Circle, opened as Huntington Hartford’s Gallery of Modern Art in 1964 and later housing the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and several generations of pigeons, reopens to the public as the Museum of Arts and Design on Sept. 27, 2008. Art critic Jerry Saltz and architecture critic Justin Davidson toured the galleries, remade by Brad Cloepfil of Allied Works Architecture, then sat down to discuss the building, the institution and their reactions.
