MoMA Exhibits Skyscraper Design

Despite being in Queens, the art museum brings out the 'starchitects' for a new show on tall buildings. Critics note the shift from contextual to signature architecture in the next generation.

In one of the last shows at the MoMA/QNS site before the museum itself moves into a skyscraper, the art museum focuses on some of the largest and most sculptural tall buildings on the drawing board. The designs on display include a who's who of the industry: Rem Koolhaas, Peter Eisenman, Renzo Piano, and Frank Gehry.
