on the boards: SFMOMA Rooftop Garden

The Rooftop Garden connects to the 5th-floor gallery of the Mario Botta designed San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) via a glass-enclosed bridge. Described by architect Mark Jensen as "a gallery without a ceiling," the two open-air spaces features a luminous glass pavilion that afford dramatic views of both the San Francisco skyline and floods the museum's interior with natural light.
The museum selected San Francisco-based Jensen & Macy Architects in collaboration with Conger Moss Guillard Landscape Architecture to design the Rooftop Garden following an invitational competition held in 2006, and construction began in early 2008 won by . Opening of the SFMOMA is scheduled for summer 2009
