New York’s new espionage museum, SPYSCAPE in Midtown Manhattan, certainly looks the part.
The dark concrete walls, polished concrete floors, LED lighting and kinetic, high-tech information displays load the 60,000 square foot space with sleek menace the way 007 fills a tuxedo.
Putting the class into classified, it was designed by UK architect David Adjaye’s firm Adjaye Associates.
Each of the seven galleries — dedicated to deception, encryption, surveillance, hacking, intelligence, cyber warfare and special ops — “are completely unique and bespoke,” Josh Ellman, Adjaye Associates’ head of communications, tells CNN Travel.
And the bespoke experience doesn’t end there.
