Farshid Moussavi's new Cleveland gallery opens doors

  • Comment

Farshid Moussavi Architecture’s new home for The Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland (MOCA) has officially opened

Originally won in competition under the banner of her former practice Foreign Office Architects’ in 2006 (AJ 31.06.06), the 18m-tall, $27.2 million (£17.6 million)scheme marks London-based Moussavi’s US debut.

The 18m-tall, four-storey building in Cleveland’s Uptown district is also Moussavi’s first completed museum building.

Clad in mirror-finish black Rimex stainless steel, the 3,100m² structure rises from a hexagonal base to a square top which houses the main exhibition space.
The 10,300m², four-storey facility will give the museum ‘street presence for the first time in its forty-plus-year history’.
