MoMA Showcases Recent Acquisitions in Contemporary Architecture

14 July, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) has debuted Conceptions of Space: Recent Acquisitions in Contemporary Architecture, an exhibit that examines how modern architects articulate space in their designs. On display are 20 international projects — represented in large-scale models, drawings, photos, videos and a room-sized installation — that explore spatial conceptions such as assemblage, envelope, fictional, and performative.
