Product Description

The New Museum Of Modern Art

By Glenn D. Lowry

Having undergone the most extensive building project in its history, The Museum of Modern Art reopened in Manhattan in November 2004, coinciding with MoMA's 75th anniversary. The 630,000-square-foot complex is nearly twice the size of the former facility, with dramatically expanded and redesigned spaces for exhibitions, public programming, educational outreach, and scholarly research. This book offers a concise overview of the new building and MoMA's intentions for its construction project by Glenn D. Lowry, Director of The Museum of Modern Art.

Architect Yoshio Taniguchi's goal was "to create an ideal environment for art and people through the imaginative and disciplined use of light, materials, and space." His stated vision of "a museum that preserves and reinforces MoMA's unique character as the repository of an incomparable collection of modern and contemporary art, as a pioneer of museums of modern art with a unique historical inheritance, and as an urban institution in a midtown Manhattan location" has been resoundingly implemented. Includes 53 color and 3 black and white illustrations.
