MoMA (the Museum of Modern Art in New York) reopens this Saturday after a $425 million (£230 million) refurbishment and extension by Japanese architect Yoshio Taniguchi. An atrium (above) creates a new centre of gravity, clarifying circulation, creating a focus for 50 per cent extra gallery space. There are new entrances on 53rd Street (left) and 54th, and the sculpture garden is restored to Philip Johnson's original design.
