SFMOMA Expansion

May 12, 2010

Here are the finalist for the SFMOMA expansion project.

Adjaye Associates, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Foster + Partners, and Snøhetta. That lands Diller Scofidio + Renfro in the second hot Bay Area museum shortlist in as many months, following last month’s Berkeley Art Museum announcement of its own new-building architect list. SFMOMA’s director was quick to note that they didn’t review actual design concepts from eachinterviewed firm on their shortlist: “We emphasized that we were not interviewing for a design, we were interviewing for a designer. We wanted to see how these teams think, the intellectual spirit and the creativity.” -via CurbedSF
