New York

Museum of Modern Art (MOMA)

The new Museum of Modern Art is designed by acclaimed architect Yoshio Taniguchi, well known in Japan and worldwide for his beautiful designs.
His elegant design for MoMA reflects the vitality of midtown Manhattan and engages the city with a block-through lobby connecting 53 and 54 streets.

The project accommodates MoMA’s growing demand for the display of its preeminent permanent collection as well as for special exhibitions, public programming, and educational and scholarly resources. The redesign significantly expands and reinterprets the midtown facilities, with visitors entering the exhibition area through spacious new skylighted galleries for contemporary art, affirming the importance of the art and artists of today.

The Museum features architecturally distinctive exhibition spaces for displaying masterpieces of modern art, a soaring atrium, and a dramatic 30-foot-high lobby area with an expansive view of the restored Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden that reestablishes the historic garden as the heart of the Museum.
The Museum’s new building complex also houses exhibition galleries and a major center devoted to education and research, reflecting the Museum’s dual priorities of exhibition and education. The spacious lobby provides convenient access to all Museum services, including ticketing, information, coat check, retail, restaurant, theaters, and galleries.
