CDM-FIX noise and vibration isolators are used to create a new distinct clear-glass façade for The Museum of Modern Art in NYC, inviting a more open dialogue between interior and exterior spaces.

The grand dame of contemporary art museums, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, is getting a $400 million facelift.

MoMA’s extensive building and renovation project includes the construction of a new space, dubbed the Studio facing 53rd Street. The new space will feature live programming and performances, film and VR/AR demonstrations. The Studio at MoMA is a result of the new partnership with the Studio Museum in Harlem.

Close collaboration with the acoustical consulting firm Cerami & Associates and Gensler architects allowed CDM to provide this unique isolation design. It includes custom isolators (CDM-FIX) for a 45’ tall glass curtain wall offering stunning views of the city, a CDM-DPM floating floor system with cubical natural rubber isolators, and custom isolators for ceiling and ceiling-mounted equipment.
