"Designed in 1953 by MoMA's Director of Architecture and Design, Philip Johnson, and is dedicated to Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, one of the Museum's founders. Her townhouse home once stood on this site. The garden evolved through a series of renovations over the next half-century. When the Museum expanded in 1984, the garden was actually reduced in size. But in 2004, architect Yoshio Taniguchi's new buildings restored the transparency and continuity between interior and exterior spaces. Now, once again, the garden functions as a central focus for the Museum." Pictured is Group of Figures by Katharina Fritsch.
