Museum für Moderne Kunst displays a wonderfully done architectural design by Hans Hollein, a Viennese architect, resembling a triangular shape from the outside. It is an experience to wonder through the inside and enjoy the large, light space and angles.
One of the highlights is the artist Joseph Bueys, with his recording of Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee playing through a series of speakers in the walls.

One can say that the building may overpower the artworks contained within, but I like to think of the architecture as a work of art in its own right. The interiors are appropriate settings for modern works as diverse as those created by Warhol, Liechtenstein, Beuys, etc. The complex series of forty or so rooms inside are to be experienced, along with exteriors that incorporate a mishmash of elements as if they were decorative dollops on a cake slice. The north facade is like an incomplete mural, with a "balcony" on one end, and a horizontal element hovering over a modern man sculpture on the other. The stepped "point" of the cake slice is a bit more successful, though it is not quite the Flatiron Building in New York.
As usual, the museum is closed Mondays, and is free and open late on Wednesdays. The museum features a nice store and the appropriately named Triangolo cafe.
