About this title


In December 1997, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, chose as architect for its ambitious expansion program Yoshio Taniguchi, designer of several admired museums in his native Japan. Since that time, the project, which is about to commence construction, and will temporarily relocate the Museum and its forthcoming exhibitions to Queens, has been a focus of international attention within the worlds of art, architecture, and design. In an appropriate departure from the Studies in Modern Art series' goal of fostering and sustaining the study of the Museum's own unparalleled collection of art works and archival material, presented here is a detailed examination of an example of institutional decision-making in a context of great practical and aesthetic complexity. Included are transcripts of conferences and lectures on the future of art museums and an illustrated presentation of charettes by the 10 architects invited to submit proposals.
