CLIENT: The Museum of Modern Art - Manhattan
LOCATION: New York, New York
New York City’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is the one of the most influential museums and curators of modern art in the world. The museum is a collection of four significant architectural buildings that date back to the late 1930s, including structures designed by Cesar Peli, Philip Johnson and Taniguchi. The museum is currently undergoing another expansion/renovation designed by DS+R that is scheduled to be completed in late 2019.
MoMA engaged Marx|Okubo to provide a detailed condition assessment of the existing facilities, as well as propose corrective measures and establish a ten-year capital plan that would best meet the needs of MoMA’s collection, visitors, staff and programs. Marx|Okubo worked closely in collaboration with the stakeholders and facilities team members to identify and establish priorities; create an overall plan for immediate and long-term repairs; and develop strategies for system replacements that would allow MoMA to maintain its standard of excellence without impacting visitor experience.
