Snøhetta reveals design for SFMOMA expansion

SFMOMA reveals the design for the museums new expansion, designed by the Norway-based architecture firm Snøhetta. measuring 225,000 square feet, the expansion will double the museum’s exhibition and education space, while enhancing the visitor experience and more deeply integrating the facility into the fabric of the city. extending from the back of the existing brick structure, the design aims to provide SFMOMA with a great public profile and an openness that will welcome visitors from both inside of the city and out. seamlessly integrated but vastly different in form, proportion and material, the new structure will feature a fully glazed facade and a series of complex pathways that aim to link the museum  – and its interior spaces – with the surrounding urban neighborhood.
