Whitney Downtown Breaks Ground, Drives Piles

With no ceremonial drums or interactive flythroughs in sight, the Whitney Museum's downtown outpost is digging in to its Meatpacking District lot. The groundbreaking was back in May; now, slowly but surely, the Renzo Piano-designed structure is getting comfortable with some "dewatering, some excavation, a smattering of underpinning, and lots of pile driving to prep the site before the ground gets too cold." This, according to roving photographer Tim Schenck who stopped by to check out the progress.
