On the freezing evening of Tuesday, January 28th, the audience packed the New York Society for Ethical Culture’s auditorium to hear a presentation and discussion of the recently announced westward expansion plan of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Co-hosted by the Architectural League of New York, the Municipal Art Society, and the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter, the discussion was nuanced and lively. You can view video from the program on our YouTube page here. This conversation about the expansion plan opened with a presentation of the proposed project by Glenn Lowry, director of the Museum of Modern Art and Liz Temkin, Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture and Elizabeth Diller, principal of Diller Scofidio + Renfro. Reed Kroloff, director of the Cranbrook Academy then moderated a panel with Cathleen McGuigan, editor of Architectural Record; architect and preservation theorist Jorge Otero-Pailos; critic and writer Nicolai Ouroussoff; Stephen Rustow, principal of design firm Museoplan; and architectural consultant and writer Karen Stein.
