Museum of Modern Art - MoMA


MoMA QNS (pronounced Q-N-S) was the temporary home for the Museum of Modern Art in Long Island City, Queens. Housed in a redesigned building that was once a Swingline staple factory, MoMA QNS served as the base of the Museum's exhibition program and operations from June 29, 2002, through September 2004. The museum moved back to its original home in Manhattan on November 20, 2004.

MoMA QNS was designed by Cooper, Robertson & Partners of New York. The architects have transformed a portion of the interior into state-of-the-art storage and research spaces that will continue to serve these important functions after the new Museum in Manhattan opens in 2005. The lobby and exterior signage on the building were designed in collaboration with Michael Maltzan Architecture of Los Angeles.
