World's Coolest Futuristic Buildings: Museum of Contemporary Art

Dean Kaufman

Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland

The design for Cleveland’s new MOCA (which debuted in late 2012) comes courtesy of London-based Iranian architect Farshid Moussavi, whose brief was to create an eye-catching space for both artists and visitors. The gleaming structure rises 60 feet high from a hexagonal base, its exterior made up of mirror-finish black stainless-steel panels that change in appearance with shifting light and weather conditions. Inside is a spacious atrium, while outside a public plaza links MOCA with Uptown attractions and amenities, including the expanded Cleveland Institute of Art. mocacleveland.org
