What is the role of a museum in contemporary society? Recognizing that a museum is a mediator between art and life, Sn0hetta's expansion to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art reimagines SFMOMA as a new form of art appreciation where the experience is an extension of the life of the city itself. This book presents the most recent investigation by Sn0hetta into how architecture can nurture social interaction and diversity, fostering relationships where the world of the imagination and the realities of our lives come together. Accompanied by sketches, drawings, and photographs that detail the design and construction process, along with writings by Rebecca Solnit, Justin Davidson, Andrew Russeth, and the designers themselves, this book is an intimate engagement with the building and its art, inhabitants, and creators. Sn0hetta is an international design studio with offices in New York, Oslo, San Francisco, and Innsbruck. Their work includes some of the world's most notable cultural and public projects. Since 1989, Sn0hetta has cultivated an original transdisciplinary approach, integrating architecture, landscape, and interior design.
