Curbed SF previosuly reported on the shortlist for the 225,000sqf expansion of the SFMOMA. The unconfirmed shortlist of the 8 practices include David Adjaye, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Steven Holl, Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), Snøhetta, and Renzo Piano. The other 2 remained unknown, but they stated that there are no local firms included.
Our friends at the Architect’s Newspaper propose a list of local practices that should have been invited: Aidlin Darling, Anne Fougeron (works previously featured at AD), IwamotoScott (projects previously featured at AD), Ogrydziak/Prillinger and Brad Cloepfil of Allied Works. I strongly agree with their list, and would like to add Stanley Saitowitz | Natoma Architects, with a vast experience in San Francisco, who recently completed the Tampa Museum of Art
