Getting to Know the Building is a look at the materials and spaces of the Modern’s architecture, with an introduction to architect Tadao Ando’s process and concerns in designing and shepherding the Modern to completion. Members walk through the building’s various spaces to see and feel the effects of the architect’s choices, as well as noting how the building functions in relation to the art it showcases.
