modern pavilions of art
on a recent trip to the kimball art museum to view the private collections of texas exhibition, i peaked in at the modern art museum of fort worth done by architect tadao ando. the galleries and the cafe appear to float on the surface of a large reflecting pond to the rear of the building. the entry hall is also an interesting space bathed in natural light reflecting off of the surface of the water and pouring in through forty foot transparent walls of glass. a series of drawings and sketches hangs on the wall displaying colorful details of building connections and concepts from initial design phases. ando's building certainly holds it's own next to those done by louis kahn and phillip johnson.
