RLS rls, yes the Denver museum building by Gio Ponti was fun to explore, and within are many floors of art from around the world that compose one of the most comprehensive presentations I have seen!

This entry is, of course, now outdated by the massive new addition by Snohetta to the SFMOMA more than doubling its size (and housing Gap clothing store founder Donald Fisher's amazing collection which, upon his death he loaned to the museum for 99 years . . . at least):

Pedestrian, I have not seen the new addition to SFMoMa in person yet but from photos it looks like it is a challenging building to love. How do you feel about it?

I can't say I "love" it but I think it is a good job of wedging a huge new wing into an almost impossible location. The Fisher Collection is quite large and the old space was already inadequate to show a fair portion of what the museum owned even before Fisher died so they needed the room and I would not like to have seen either the Botta building butchered or the collection split into 2 locations. I think I've read that combined the 2 buildings now have the largest amount of square footage of any North American modern art museum. That's believable to me because look at the thing--it's a high rise in itself, equivalent in height to 20 floors of the W Hotel next door.

Actually, from the side away from the Botta building--the side where you pretty much see just the Snohetta wing, I rather like it. From the other side, where you see it sticking up above the Botta building, not so much. One thing I definitely don't like is what they did to Botta's main entrance staircase. That blond-wooded Scandinavian look is fine for the new wing--Snohetta IS Scandinavian after all--but Botta's original entrance hall on the 3rd St side was appropriate to his building--polished stone--and quite grand whereas the wood looks out of place, even cheap (one might say "temporary"), to me.

I also bet the W doesn't like it much. 20 floors of their east-facing rooms lost any view at all. That must cut the nightly rate they can charge.

Pedestrian, I hadn't thought about the W Hotel being upset but it makes sense considering the bulk of the new addition. I agree that the Fisher Collection has much more exposure to being viewed when folded into this museum's collection instead of a separate museum. The city is rather saturated with museums so I would think that if it had been housed in a new one it may have struggled.
