‘Cronocaos,’ by Rem Koolhaas, at the New Museum -

UN Studio architect Ben van Berkel on Dubai's Museum of Middle Eastern Modern Art (Momema) - artforum news
UN Studio architect Ben van Berkel flew to Dubai last week to discuss his $437 million Museum of Middle Eastern Modern Art (Momema) - the region’s first museum of Middle East modern art.
