This video shows the latest from Norwegian super-firm Snøhetta's expansion plans for SFMOMA in San Francisco. I attended the press preview on November 30th and heard from both the SFMOMA brass and Snøhetta principal Craig Dykers. The S.F. design press was out in force and it was exciting to see this visualization of the new building (set to open in early 2016). The rippling white slab of Snøhetta's division will sit behind the 1995 Mario Botta building that comprises SFMOMA, drawing the structure into the city block. —Aaron Britt
