Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt, MMK, was founded in 1981. The museum was designed by the Viennese architect Hans Hollein. Because of its triangular shape, it is called “piece of cake”.

In 1983, architect Hans Hollein won the architecture competition for the Museum für Moderne Kunst; three years earlier, his proposal for the city’s Museum für angewandte Kunst had finished a close second behind Richard Meier’s prize-winning design. The ground-breaking was delayed until 1987, and the new museum was eventually built at a cost of about $38 million. Established in 1981, the building opened in 1991.
