The Utah Museum of Contemporary Art believes in the power of the art of our time. Through programming, advocacy, and collaboration, we work with artists and communities to build a better world.

Imagining UMOCA

Jan 24, 2017 – Apr 15, 2017

Led by Anne Mooney in the Senior Design Studio course at the University of Utah, architecture students imagined possibilities for expanding the museum to serve its diverse and growing audience. They began by researching contemporary artists, and then devel­oped their art analyses into 3D designs for one of three downtown sites, attempting to capture the essence of the artist they selected in their proposals. 

These final concepts by six students meet UMOCA’s programmatic and functional requirements, while also creating a spatial experi­ence that unfolds gradually for the visitor and engages both body and mind.
