Mario Botta’s building for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art opened in 1995 and became an instant architectural landmark. The elegant brick fa├žade and turret is an icon in the city and its light-filled galleries and striking central staircase are now as big an attraction to visitors as the art presented within. As Mario Botta says: “In museums, the real challenge is to discover that perfect balance where the architecture and art enrich one another”.
