brilliant building by diller scofidio renfro on the waterfront. boasts the world's largest glass elevator, spacious enough to fit a small band, but more importantly dares to rival new york, london and paris contemporary museums, with multimedia collections and cool exhibits such as spring 09's shepard fairey retrospective. love the hidden multimedia mac room that makes you feel like you're in space mountain as you look directly into the water and the giant corridor with benches and a spectacular view of fan pier area in the rear of the museum, perfect for making out.
