  • MoMa's Upcoming Expansion

    Construction involving any prestigious institution is a rare undertaking. The Museum of Modern Art's ambitious plan by star architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro to substantially extend and convert the current space has been getting a lot of buzz. The idea behind the re-design is to make the museum more open and welcoming; plans include a revamping of the museum's lobby and the famous Bauhaus staircase, expanding gallery space by 50,000 square feet (about 4,600 square meters), and opening up the East hall. MoMa is always worth a visit for architecture and modern art fans, but the completion of the re-design in 2019 will definitely add a layer of urgency to the next visit.
