Snøhetta, SFMOMA, rendering for expansion, 2012.

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art under construction, 1993.

Svetlana finds SFMOMA, renovated in 2013–16, to be a curious conflation of artspace and airport, full of amenities that, she concludes, appear primed for shuttling people past the art at record speeds. Shortly after this renovation, the museum was subjected to accelerated ruination—this was the newest trend in art-making that started around mid-century 2050.
