MoMA, Come Home
Edited by Sheila Kim-Jamet -- Interior Design, 10/1/2004 12:00:00 AM
After three years of construction, two years in temporary digs in Long Island City, and an immeasurable amount of fanfare, New York's Museum of Modern Art returns to Manhattan. The new MoMA—designed by Taniguchi and Associates in cooperation with Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates and Cooper, Robertson & Partners—is a $425 million exploration of fritted, gray, and clear glass, aluminum, and black granite. The 12,400-square-foot column-free lobby and the restored, expanded Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden have already been declared modern masterpieces.
Admission, free on the first day, goes up to a whopping $20 thereafter. Opening November 20; 212-708-9400; moma.org.
