Donald Judd House, 101 Spring Street New York, USA
In 1968, Donald Judd purchased 101 Spring Street, a 5-story cast-iron building designed by Nicholas Whyte and constructed in 1870. As one of the founding sites in the program of Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios for the National Trust for Historic Preservation, 101 Spring Street is the only intact, single-use cast-iron building remaining in SoHo. Serving as the New York residence and studio of Donald Judd, 101 Spring Street is considered to be the birthplace of “permanent installation,” now a hallmark of contemporary art, as well as an inspiration for much of Judd’s work.
