Snøhetta’s SFMoMA Expansion
Another expansion to an important building, Oslo-based firm Snøhetta’s design calls for a rather large addition to Mario Botta’s San Francisco Museum of Modern Art building. Rather than buddy up to Botta’s relatively small original, the new wing expands vertically, rising as an immense white backdrop to the celebrated post-modern structure. In doing so, the museum will be instantly doubled and will include new public spaces such as outdoor terraces and a sculpture garden.
