In a move designed to excite contributors and patrons flocking to the Hirshhorn museum and Sculpture garden, Museum director Richard Koshalel is considering undergoing a $5 million renovation of the modern art museum that would see expanded space for the growing number of displays and visitors through a series of inflatable balloons emerging from the structure.

If adopted, these new renovations would see an enormous balloon inflated from the cylindrical building''s center courtyard producing a bulbous, egg-like protrusion from the museum''s open air ceiling and a smaller "goiter-like" bubble bursting through the ground level, according to the Washington Post.

The root of this design lies with New York architecture firm Diller, Scofidio and Renfro, whose recent redesign of a decaying New York train line as a garden walkway was met with much acclaim.

"We''re calling it a temporary inflatable pavilion," Koshalek tells the local news "It''s going to be a major attraction for fundraising and for collaboration and partnership from around the world."

Being a temporary structure, the Bubble would run from May through October of 2011 if approved.
