Today's archidose #666

Just so happens that #666 (aka Number of the Beast) of the "today's archidose" series features the soon-to-razed American Folk Art Museum, coming two days after MoMA announced they are going to replace the 12-year-old museum designed by Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects with an expansion that melds with their building. It's doubtful that the MoMA expansion will have as much exterior character or interior richness as its predecessor. Shame on MoMA for not finding a way to keep this important building.
