East Newsletter

The Architecture League of New York has released a video of the discussion convened last week to discuss to MoMA’s planned expansion. The move, which entails the demolition of the adjacent American Folk Art Museum, is a contentious one and has sparked much debate within the architectural community. Tuesday’s conversation included contributions from the Museum’s director, Glenn Lowry, Elizabeth Diller (principal of Diller Scofidio + Renfro, who is overseeing the project), and a slew of other architects, journalists, and theorists who all questioned MoMA’s decision to do away with their Tod Williams Billie Tsien-designed neighbor.
