MoMA Design Store

The retail spaces for the new Museum of Modern Art consist of two main areas: the 6,400-square-foot Design and Book Store on 53rd Street and the 1,600-square-foot bookstore on the second floor of the museum. In addition, an open retail area was created on the sixth floor adjacent to the temporary exhibition galleries. Working closely with the museum staff and retail specialists, Gluckman Mayner Architects designed each of the separate stores with a distinctive palette of materials while demonstrating extraordinary attention to the functional requirements of storage and display.
