The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth opened its new building, designed by the renowned Japanese architect Tadao Ando, to the public on December 14, 2002.
The new Modern is located in Fort Worth’s celebrated Cultural District, directly opposite the Kimbell Art Museum, designed by Louis I. Kahn, and near the Amon Carter Museum, designed by Philip Johnson. To date, the Museum is Mr. Ando’s largest project completed outside of Japan. It comprises five long, flat-roofed pavilions situated on a two-acre reflecting pond.
