Diller Scofidio + Renfro's redesign was underway, and the architecture and design galleries faced something of an uncertain future in the expanded museum layout. On the podcast, Stierli dispels the rumors that the galleries would be closed permanently, and discusses MoMA's strategies for exhibiting architecture, as well as his plans to diversify the museum's collection.</p><p>Listen to&nbsp;<a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/670405/one-to-one" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">One-to-One</a>&nbsp;#38 with&nbsp;<strong>Martino Stierli</strong>:</p><ul><li><strong>iTunes</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/neil-denari/id1057340260?i=356797877" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Click here to listen&nbsp;and subscribe to the new&nbsp;"Archinect Sessions One-to-One" podcast</a></li><li><strong>SoundCloud</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="http://soundcloud.com/archinect" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">click here to follow Archinect</a></li><li><strong>RSS</strong>: subscribe with any of your favorite podcasting apps via our RSS feed:&nbsp;<a href="http://onetoone.libsyn.com/rss" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://onetoone.libsyn.com/rss</a></li><li><strong>Download</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="http://traffic.libsyn.com/onetoone/One_To_One_Episode_38_Martino_Stierli.mp3" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">this episode</a></li></ul><p></p> https://archinect.com/news/article/149969134/moma-makes-all-its-museum-exhibition-archives-available-online MoMA makes all its museum exhibition archives available online Orhan Ayyüce 2016-09-18T17:24:00-04:00 >2016-09-19T05:48:09-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/vc/vczmue2alkxx4an2.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/vc/vczmue2alkxx4an2.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/vc/vczmue2alkxx4an2.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/vc/vczmue2alkxx4an2.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><em><p>Exhibitions from our founding in 1929 to the present are available online.

To address this issue, six interdisciplinary teams spent 14 months in workshops designing proposals that investigate new architectural possibilities for six metropolises. Each case study will be exhibited to the public at MoMA starting on November 22.</p></em><br /><br /><p>But the discussion doesn't end there. MoMA also created a user-generated <a href="http://uneven-growth.moma.org/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Tumblr</a> that collects examples of emerging modes of tactical urbanism taking place in the six cities.</p><p>Here's a glimpse:</p><p><strong>LAGOS</strong><br>By NL&Eacute; (Lagos, Nigeria and Amsterdam, Netherlands)<br>Zoohaus/Inteligencias Colectivas (Madrid, Spain)</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/0o/0ons4nm5za66uq8d.jpg"></p><p><strong>HONG KONG</strong><br>By MAP Office (Hong Kong, China)<br>Network Architecture Lab (Columbia University, New York, U.S.)</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/s7/s7and5psdjvpi2kc.jpg"></p><p><strong>ISTANBUL</strong><br>By Superpool (Istanbul, Turkey)<br>Atelier d&rsquo;Architecture Autog&eacute;r&eacute;e (Paris, France)</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/m3/m37c1xfs7kyexzfw.jpg"></p><p><strong>MUMBAI</strong><br>By URBZ: user-generated cities (Mumbai, India)<br>Ensamble Studio/MIT-POPlab (Madrid, Spain and Cambridge, U.S.)</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/18/18hxwgs39hw2eswn.jpg"></p><p><strong>RIO DE JANEIRO</strong><br>By RUA Arquitetos (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)<br>MAS Urban Design at ETH (Zurich, Switzerland)</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/jh/jhveryk6ljc91i7n.jpg"></p><p><strong>NEW YORK</strong><br>By SITU Studio (New York, U.S.)<br>Cohabitation Strategies (CohStra) (Rotterdam, Netherlands AND New York, U.S.)</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/ll/ll9izqxg6cri2hqq.jpg"></p><p>For further details and images from each case study, head over to <a href="http://www.bustler.net/index.php/article/moma_concludes_uneven_growth_workshops_case_studies_to_be_exhibited_this_mo/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Bustler</a>.</p> https://archinect.com/news/article/109255020/construction-on-jean-nouvel-s-moma-tower-will-finally-move-forward Construction on Jean Nouvel’s MoMA Tower will Finally Move Forward Diane Pham 2014-09-18T18:16:00-04:00 >2014-09-24T19:24:34-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/8a/8an1k3ahz9j9ht30.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/8a/8an1k3ahz9j9ht30.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/8a/8an1k3ahz9j9ht30.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/8a/8an1k3ahz9j9ht30.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><em><p>Hot off the purchase of $85 million in air rights, and with a new construction loan of $860 million in tow, developer Hines is back on track to bring the Jean Nouvel-designed MoMA residential tower to fruition. Hines just closed on two deals to buy more than 240,000 square feet of development rights from MoMA and the St. Thomas Episcopal Church for $85.3 million.</p></em><br /><br /><p>After being stalled for seven years, construction on Jean Nouvel's MoMA tower will begin this year. The tower has shrunk about 200 feet since it was first unveiled, but the design remains wholly the same. Funding and the acquisition of new air rights are what's brining the project, more than a decade in the making, to fruition.</p> https://archinect.com/news/article/106554065/revisiting-the-american-folk-art-museum-controversy-through-comics Revisiting the American Folk Art Museum controversy, through comics Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-08-14T13:01:00-04:00 >2014-08-18T20:30:48-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/4z/4zl35r26mr1rsj38.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/4z/4zl35r26mr1rsj38.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/4z/4zl35r26mr1rsj38.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/4z/4zl35r26mr1rsj38.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><em><p>Artist and animator Sam Grinberg revisits the fight over the future of the American Folk Art Museum.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html>
