CLIENT: The Museum of Modern Art - Hamlin
LOCATION: Hamlin, Pennsylvania
MoMA’s facility located in Hamlin, Pennsylvania, was opened in 1996 to serve as the Celeste Bartos Film Preservation Center for MoMA’s permanent collection of film. The facility encompasses two buildings situated on a 38-acre property designed by Davis, Brody & Associates. The buildings house more than 30,000 films between the permanent and study collections and contains one of the strongest international collections of motion pictures in the world.
In order to maintain a safe environment for the fragile collection, Marx|Okubo worked with MoMA to provide a facility condition assessment of the property and provide a ten-year plan that would address the immediate and long-term needs of the aging buildings. Marx|Okubo worked with stakeholders and facilities maintenance personnel prioritize items and efforts so MoMA could manage necessary repairs and replacement of aging systems.
