A new interactive museum honoring liberty and mass immigration will be the the first building constructed on Liberty island in decades. The $70m project design plans were unveiled Thursday morning. Designer Diane von Furstenberg, chair of the fundraising campaign raising money for the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, said, “Lady Liberty is a symbol of everything America’s about: freedom, hope, possibility and resilience.” The museum will be designed by architecture firm FXFOWLE.
