Stephen Rustow

STEPHEN RUSTOW is a principal of Museoplan and Professor of Architecture at The Cooper Union; from 1999 to 2006 he directed the N.Y. architectural team on MoMA’s last expansion.


It is no small irony that MoMA’s argument for demolishing the American Folk Art Museum and its critics’ argument for preserving it both hinge on the notion that the abandoned building is “bespoke,” an object of exceptional quality, made from scratch to the demands of a specific client.
