This week, construction broke ground on San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). The Snøhetta designed extension will double the size of the museum’s exhibition space. The expansion includes more than 12,000 square meters of both indoor and outdoor galleries and 1,000 square meters of public art space. The architects have proposed a free, glass-facaded gallery on the ground floor, several more public entrances to increase accessibility, a two-story high box on the fourth floor for live art and screenings, and another outdoor sculpture garden that will house a “wall of native California plants”. The new building will increase the original’s height. The SFMOMA was designed first by Mario Botta in 2955.
