The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) announced today that it would open a new 63,000 square foot Education and Research Building at its Upper West Side location on 28 November. The building, designed by Taniguchi and Associates of Tokyo, Japan, marks the completion of the Museum’ s $425 million expansion and renovation project. The eight-storey structure clad in fritted, gray and clear glass and black granite and aluminum panels will house a library, archives, a 125-seat theatre, and study centres for the departments of Film and Media, Painting and Sculpture; and Architecture and Design. The building will be among the world’s top research centres on modern and contemporary art and will significantly enhance the Museum’s capacity to offer an array of programs and resources to the public.
