The Metropolitan Museum of Art, located in New York City, is the largest museum in the United States and one of the world’s largest art galleries. It houses more than two million works of art from artists around the world, ranging from historic paintings and sculptures to modern art. With such a wide array of art, it is one of the most visited art museums in the world.
SOPREMA was chosen to protect this collection of art spanning 5,000 years of world culture. Since it was built in 1874, the museum has had many expansions and now has multiple additions surrounding the original building. SOPREMA waterproofing products were used during the museum’s expansion including COLPHENE® 3000 to provide a watertight solution for the foundation. This waterproofing system is a flexible, versatile, dependable, roll-type waterproofing membrane.
