Met entrance plaza to get major makeover

April 30, 2010 09:41AM

Billionaire David Koch will donate “at least $10 million” to fund a renovation of the entrance plaza to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Several as-yet-undisclosed architectural firms have already interviewed for the project, which will involve a makeover of the museum’s two landmarked fountains and its exterior lighting system, Koch said. The idea for the renovation was inspired by Lincoln Center’s new fountain, the effect of which Koch said he hopes to recreate. [WSJ]
