Curated by Barry Bergdoll - the Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design - and curatorial assistant Margot Weller, Building Collections, at MoMA New York (until 30 May 2011), highlights recent acquisitions made by the museum's Department of Architecture and Design.

Covering eight distinct themed areas that encompass the full range of the collection - which dates from 1890 to the present - the exhibition includes everything from delicate sketches by the likes of Heinz and Bodo Rasch (Suspension Houses Project) to the complete paraphernalia of the design process, such as the models, sketches and plans for UNStudio’s Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart. The vast majority of pieces on display are being shown exclusively for the very first time.
