Scale of the Tate Modern, yet Unique to Cleveland.  I am VERY proud.

What an amazing beauty! The transformation has let the 1916 building shine on all sides.

Nice job. The colors are so crisp that those appear to be computer-generated.

I just wonder how that massive space is ever going to feel populated.  Saturdays and Sundays will obviously have more people milling about than a Wednesday I suppose.

Realize it is just opened - and some tweaking to do. Screaming for large scale sculputures and art on floor and walls. As for the "life" that space needs to keep it from seeming dead, where's the water feature to create both movement and sound?

^From the last article, sounds as though large scale stuff is very much part of the plan.  I'm sure the cafe will add a fair amount of life too.  The fact that there hasn't been any official hoopla about the space is a pretty clear sign that's it's definitely not finished yet, even though it's open. We'll just have to wait and see what the next steps are.

I don't know that I'd want it cluttered up with a bunch of stuff. That sense of 'open' is very peaceful.

There is a basement below the atrium, which is best kept dry. I believe the water feature idea belonged to Mr. Rub. I can't see it happening now. That said, it is certainly unfair to suggest a half finished space is lifeless. The store, cafe, gallery one, and another wing of the museum open on to the atrium, none of which are open. The museum already has a water feature, it's called Wade Park Lagoon.

Truly a monumental museum addition with great risk involved--yet, as posters have already mentioned, such a relaxing place. (just looking at it from afar makes me wish I could linger within for a number of reasons)  Now that this addition has been opened to the public, the director's large-scale ulterior exhibition plans will undoubtedly be revealed.  The expansive and serene skylight, alone, adds much to this imaginative wing.

Just a quick question. I do not see any lights so I am wondering what this space will look like when the roof is covered with snow.  Perhaps I am not seeing the picture correctly.  Are those globes hanging from the roof lights or fans?

Well.... there has to be lighting or else they would have to shut the area down as soon as the sun goes down, snow or not.  However, with regard to the snow, I seem to remember reading some feature to this roof which prevents snow accumulation

Pretty sure those things on the skylight underside of the atrium roof joists visible in several of the mrclifton's photos are indeed lights.

Edited for clarity

I believe roof framework has hot water running through to keep it clear of snow and condensation

With all the discussion on light and the atrium -- here's a pic from this weekend on a truly cloudy and rainy day:

This looks fantastic. I can't wait for the MoCA to open so next time I'm home I can have myself a museum day. It'll be a great day to experience some great new architecture in Cleveland.

The undulating gardens seem evocative of the green-roof on the new convention center downtown. 
Is there a happy weaving of ideas from around Cleveland taking place?  - Or, am I just delighted,  and thus perceiving such things from my own imagination?

In the last month or so, the museum has reopened the west galleries in the lower level of the 1916 building, the "In Focus" special exhibition gallery located on the south side of the atrium, another small special exhibition gallery under the atrium, and "Gallery One"- the new interactive digital galleries. The customizable ArtLens App is now fully operational as well, which uses RFID tags and IPads to guide visitors deep into the museum's Collection. I'm going to visit in the next few days and I'll try and get some photos that demonstrate exactly what Gallery One is...I got a sneak peek and it was fascinating! Here's a couple of the Collection Wall and the bamboo forest in the atrium that I pulled off my Instagram.

I don't know if anyone else has seen this nice video CMA had done. This shows the construction of the atrium area. It has turned out to be a magnificent space.
