At this morning’s press event, The Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA) unveiled the completed renovations to the east end of its museum campus, while also revealing for the first time the full design of their multi-year expansion project designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Gensler. With the completion of the east wing renovation, which began in February 2016, the museum has created two spacious third-floor galleries by reconfiguring 15,000 square feet of space, allowing for better flexibility in installing the collection and temporary exhibitions. Additionally, the building’s historic Bauhaus staircase has been extended to the ground level, enhancing access to the second floor, where Cafe 2 has been renovated and a new museum store and espresso bar will offer visitors views into the The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Gardens. On the ground floor a new first floor lounge will provide indoor seating with visual connections to the sculpture garden, while improvements to amenities including restrooms and a new street level coat check will enhance the overall visitor experience.
