The architecture firm Snøhetta designed the striking white expansion, which includes 10 new stories that sit seamlessly atop the original Mario Botta-designed building. The project tripled SFMOMA's previous gallery space, allowing the museum to display more of its collection of 33,000 modern and contem- porary works of art. The museum reopened with 19 special exhibitions, including a selection of 260 postwar and contemporary works from the Doris and Donald Fisher Collection. SFMOMA includes free public access to nearly 45,000 square feet of galleries on the ground f loor as well as permanently free admission to all visitors 18 and younger. W W W . S F M O M A .
