The level of destruction has reached maximum at the SFMOMA building site near Howard and Third streets in the Yerba Buena neighborhood. With demolition ongoing for around three months, the entire rear portion of the building is now being removed, along with the bridge that connected the main building to the parking lot and rooftop sculpture garden. After the debris has been cleared, expect to see foundation work begin on the 225,000 sq. ft. ultra-modern addition, designed by the starchitects over at Snøhetta, that will more than double the previous gallery space. The new addition is scheduled for completion in late 2015, but for those who can't wait that long check out "SFMOMA on the go" to stay connected to their traveling and temporary art exhibits.
