Model Behavior

Snøhetta's First Concepts for SFMOMA

May 14, 2016—January 16, 2017


As a practice, Snøhetta architects begin each project by identifying a set of conditions inherent to the site — not merely its physical setting, but also its cultural context — with the goal of designing spaces that frame a condition, direct attention, and provide a deliberate experience. The more than fifty sketch models and five sketchbooks on view offer perspective on the design process behind the SFMOMA expansion, and a mobile app explores the museum’s built architecture, with a narrated walk-through of key design decisions in the new SFMOMA.

Major support for Model Behavior: Snøhetta’s First Concepts for SFMOMA is provided by
