ART/DESIGN: Snohetta Addition at the SFMOMA


Norwegian total design firm Snøhetta‘s expansion plans for the SFMOMA in San Francisco brings you celebrations before their closing for the improvements. Set to open in early 2016, the new addition is reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim in New York City with it’s sweeping white ribbons. The new building will sit behind the 1995 Mario Botta structure. Like the Guggenheim, the SFMOMA extension will be a monument to the modern art it displays.
