contributed by asanchez

Founded in 1929 as an educational institution, The Museum of Modern Art is dedicated to being the foremost museum of modern art in the world. Japanese architect Taniguchi won a competition in 1997 to redesign the MoMa, beating out ten other internationally renowned architects, including Rem Koolhaas, Bernard Tschumi, and Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron. The MoMA commission was his first work outside Japan. Taniguchi's beautiful and bold design reflects the unique vitality of midtown Manhattan and sensitively draws upon and transforms the language of modernism. Highlights include larger, more flexible, sky-lit galleries for contemporary art; architecturally distinctive galleries for masterpieces of modern art; and prominent and more comprehensive areas for study, research, and educational endeavors.
