Upstate New York is indeed a place of wonder where a side road may open up into a farm, a hill, and these days, an ultra-modern art space. Magazzino strives for the latter: a beautiful, barebones building with sharp lines and a curious collection of contemporary Italian artists on view, just off U.S. 9 highway not far from Cold Spring, NY.

The building is designed by Spanish architect Miguel Quismondo

Pondering at one of Michelangelo Pistoletto’s mirror drawings (see full series on Google Images): a series of silkscreen images mounted on polished stainless steel
There’re many delightful details in the construction of the building, including the world’s most minimal electric outlet
Except for the logo, Magazzino’s style and signage is infused with Helvetica typeface
