San Jose State University Museum of Art and Design (SJSU MoDA) By KONYK
San Jose’s position in the center of Silicon Valley necessitates that the new Museum of Design and Art (MoDA) be a center for emerging technologies encouraging their incorporation into design and art.
A 60 foot high volume is clad in dull white zinc. The interior volume is the exhibition “Kunsthalle” designed as a “white volumetric,” which is neutral until activated by art media. Inserted into this volume are educational spaces for studios and classrooms.
