Sneak Peek: Scenes From Inside the New SFMOMA

New, 1 comment

Stark and beautiful, inside and out

Three years in the making, today the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art re-opened their doors to the media for an exclusive look at the Snøhetta-designed makeover. And what a transformation it is. SFMOMA as you knew it is a thing of the past, raising the bar from 70,000 square feet (pre-expansion) to 170,000 square feet (post-expansion).

Before Curbed SF's big feature on the museum goes live on Friday, relish these shots from today's preview of San Francisco's newest and boldest design statement. The expansion boasts excellent use of open space, all-gender bathrooms, signage, and more.

So very much more.

SFMOMA opens to the public on May 14, 2016.
