Transformations for NYC MoMA Expansion

The design of our building informs new social interaction between daytime galleries and night time theatric events. The addition to the MoMA will be a economic catalyst to increase pubic activity levels and density of population occupying the building within a 24 hour time zone as suppose to a 12 hour operating MoMA.
