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 recently completed a major expansion/renovation designed by DS+R prior to re-opening in 2020.
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.
