The institute broke ground Wednesday on the 165,000-square-foot Nancy and Rich Kinder building, which will house 54,000 square feet of modern and contemporary art exhibits. The building will include a 200-seat theater, a cafe and a restaurant overlooking a sculpture garden.
At night, the Steven Holl Architects-designed building's translucent glass exterior will be lit to glow, and it will be surrounded by six different ground-level pools of water.
The building, which is slated to open in late 2019, is just one part of a 14-acre, $450 million redesign of the museum's campus.
