Works on view at 101 Spring Street remain as they were installed by Judd prior to his death. Judd's concept of "permanent installation" centered on the belief that the placement of a work of art was as critical to its understanding as the work itself. His installations of artworks, furniture, and museum-quality decorative objects strike an admirable balance between respect for the historic nature of this cast-iron landmark and Judd’s innovative approaches to interior design.
Designed by Nicholas Whyte and constructed in 1870, 101 Spring Street is the only intact, single-use cast-iron building remaining in SoHo. This distinction has earned it the highest designation for national significance as part of the SoHo Historic Cast-Iron District.
101 Spring Street is one of the founding sites in the program of Historic Artists' Homes and Studios for the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
