How do you transform an old staple factory into temporary quarters for The Museum of Modern Art? As one of the world's foremost museums prepares to undergo massive renovations, rebuilding, and expansion, an interim space has been created in Queens, one of the five boroughs, to house exhibitions and administrative and curatorial offices. After the Manhattan site reopens, MoMA QNS will continue to be used as a study center and art storage facility. This publication details the renovation process and discusses the building from conception to completion, with images of the drawings, plans, and structure. The architects for the project, Michael Maltzan, Inc. and Cooper, Robertson & Partners, are discussed in terms of their roles at MoMA QNS and their other projects. Published to coincide with the opening of MoMA QNS.
