A Modern Garden

The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden at The Museum of Modern Art | In the Fall of 2004, The Museum of Modern Art completed a major expansion and renovation of its famous midtown Manhattan building, doubling the Museum's size and introducing dynamic new galleries and public spaces. At the core of the remodeled Museum, designed by architect Yoshio Taniguchi, is the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, newly restored to its 1953 dimensions.

Described by Taniguchi as "perhaps the most distinctive single element of the Museum today," the Sculpture Garden, an oasis of water, trees and masterpieces of modern sculpture, has long been the Museum's signature space--as well as its social heart. This fully illustrated, affordable, pocket-sized book is designed to convey the beauty and elegance of the garden. It also features a photographic chronology of the many performances, exhibitions and events held in the garden over the years, as well as an introduction and a brief historical narrative.
