SAN FRANCISCO | SFMOMA Expansion | 10 fl | T/O

Just Released SFMOMA Expansion Video Features Snøhetta Principal, New Renderings



Quote:
Wednesday, January 9, 2013, by Sally Kuchar

"It will be in fact the largest gallery spaces available of any museum in the country for modern art." That's just one of the many factoids you'll learn by watching the above video, which dives deep into the SFMOMA expansion, expected to be completed by 2016.

In 2010, Norwegian architecture firm Snøhetta was selected for the museum's expansion design. Snøhetta is the same firm that the Golden State Warriors recently tapped to design the team's new waterfront arena on the Embarcadero. The video features the expansion's key players: Neal Benezra, Director of SFMOMA; Craig Dykers, Principal of Snøhetta; Yves Béhar; Supervisor Jane Kim; and a plethora of staffers who are super stoked about the museum's future. "It's going to be a piece of art in itself," says designer Michael Vanderbyl. Sprinkled throughout the short video are new renderings of the space.

SFMOMA Kicks Off Expansion Project



Quote:
John King, Michael Cabanatuan
Published 4:15 pm, Wednesday, May 29, 2013


For the second time in 22 years, and with less fanfare than the first time around, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art kicked off an expansion project.

The event on Wednesday was decidedly ceremonial, since construction crews are still clearing the site where a 10-story wing will rise behind SFMOMA's red-brick citadel on Third Street. But the museum wanted to mark what Director Neal Benezra called "a defining moment" before the museum closes its doors on Sunday.

So as museum leaders, Mayor Ed Lee and Supervisor Jane Kim held shovels on stage above a long box of sandy soil, first-graders from Bessie Carmichael Elementary School pressed down on a mock detonator. Streams of confetti and streamers shot above the Natoma Street cul-de-sac that will be swallowed up by the new wing that will stretch from Minna south to Howard Street, where there will be a major new public entrance.

The liveliest speech was by architect Craig Dykers of Snøhetta, the firm that led the design effort. He likened "the act of building" to giving birth: First come the discussions - "can we do this?" - and then the creative phase ("the fun part") followed by pregnancy and birth.

"The difference is, nine months of labor becomes 26 months in this case," Dykers said.

SFMOMA Closes, Breaks Ground on Expansion Project



Quote:
With nothing remaining of the old Fire Station #1 but a pile of rubble, the SFMOMA expansion project is officially underway. The Snøhetta-designed expansion and remodel, coming in at a whopping $610 million, will add 225,000 square feet, more than double the existing gallery space and 6 times the public space. Features will include an outdoor terrace, sculpture terrace, and state-of-the-art conservation studios. The new building will create space for the Fisher Collection, donated by Gap founders Doris and Donald Fisher, and is seeking LEED Gold certification. A modern fire station was built down the road in order for the museum to expand onto the adjacent parcel.

The museum officially closed on June 2, and will remain that way for roughly 2.5 years while under construction, but there are still many opportunities to experience the art collection through the SFMOMA On the Go program.

This is a worthy addition to the landmark original, and if it has great cladding, it may likely exceed the original.

SFMoma’s New Addition Shows Progress



Quote:
The steel skeletal frame for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s (SFMoma) new expansion building is showing considerable progress 13 months after the project’s groundbreaking ceremony. Currently risen more than half way to its maximum height, the structure is expected to top out by this September. A recent tour showed high ceiling floors and curved irregular shaped steel beams that will support the building’s uniquely shaped exterior.






Exterior panels being fabricated for installation later this year:







Voila! The finished product: a giant Baked Alaska!

Composites. Here's the details:

Quote:
Architect Snøhetta designed the building with an unconventional white exterior that includes large bulges and small ripples inspired by the bay and nearby waters. The architect’s liberal creativity was made possible by using a facade comprised of a synthetic fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite with added natural aggregates. The material, uniquely formulated by fabricator Kreysler and Associates, can be molded in an infinite amount of shapes and is considerably more cost effective and lightweight compared to traditional materials. Kreysler and Associates is molding the fire resistant material into 700 unique panels approximately 3/16th of an inch thick. Each panel will be fastened to an exterior aluminum frame and when completed will represent the largest installation ever of an FRP. Deliveries and installation of the panels are slated to start later this year.
