This compelling film captures the story of the extraordinary design and construction of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. The documentary includes on-site construction footage; the process behind Mr. Ando’s signature concrete; his greatest buildings in Japan; the key to his Modernist and Japanese influences; and interviews with the architects Frank Gehry and Richard Meier and the artist Richard Serra. The documentary will give viewers a chance to gain a deeper appreciation of the Modern's building.

The Museum will screen Making the Modern in the auditorium as a special engagement in celebration of the Modern’s 21st anniversary on December 14, 2023. Museum visitors can add to their Museum experience by viewing this beautiful and informative film when they visit the galleries.
