Designed by Foreign Office Architects (FOA) in collaboration with Westlake Reed Leskosky Design, Cleveland, Ohio's Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) will be a functional and beautiful expansion. The nearly 34,000 square foot building will be four stories high, rising from a hexagonal base to become a square roof. It will be clad primarily in mirror-finish black Rimex stainless steel, with windows glazed with a similar reflective finish. This will allow the museum to present a unified dark, reflective surface during daylight, and to create a dynamic pattern from the interior lights at night. It will also be adjacent to a public plaza that will serve as its "front yard," and be a space for outdoor events.

I think, when less is perfect... actually you can read the whole proyect with one sight, and always there are going to be many new sides to get a view.
