Next Friday, March 15th, Design Milk will be hosting an exciting Twitter chat with Ruth Berson, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) Deputy Museum Director, Curatorial Affairs about SFMOMA’s expansion project and the building’s innovative design, which was created in collaboration with Norwegian architectural firm Snøhetta. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the museum of the future, a 235,000-square-foot building expansion that will offer approximately 130,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor gallery space, as well as nearly 15,000 square feet of art-filled free-access public space in addition to expanded education programs for schoolchildren, more flexible galleries to accommodate live performances and large-scale works of art, and field-leading contributions to global standards of energy efficiency for art museums.
So what makes this expansion so exiting? So innovative? We’ll ask Ruth these questions, and more, but we invite YOU the reader, to submit your questions, too. What do you want to know about modern museum design and architecture, sustainable design and green practices for large spaces, or how something like this all comes together? Put your questions here in the comments, email them to me or tweet them on Twitter @designmilk using the #FutureSFMOMA hashtag. We hope you’ll join in the conversation.
UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who came to the chat! Here’s the full transcript of the chat in case you missed it.
