A black and white look at the Renzo Piano Pavilion just past sunset. This is the newest addition to the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth Texas. Seen from the arcade of the original Louis Kahn building of the Kimbell, and reflected in that museum's pool, the Piano Pavillion is a joy to behold. The new wing of the museum is named after the famed architect Renzo Piano. From a review in the NY Times: "The architect behind the expansion of the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth is so famous that his name has been affixed to the project like a brand... Mr. Piano has designed notable buildings like the Pompidou Center in Paris and the Modern Wing of the Art Institute of Chicago, and his association with Texas institutions of fine art dates back more than a quarter-century to his 1987 Menil Collection in Houston. Eight years later, he designed the Cy Twombly Gallery in the same city and in 2003 his Nasher Sculpture Center opened in Dallas... But the $135 million Piano Pavilion is, perhaps, Mr. Piano's most subtly ambitious Texas work to date, in part because the structure was commissioned to serve one of the most revered museum buildings in the country, designed by the American architect Louis I. Kahn." The rest of the review can be read at: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/24/us/the-kimbells-stylish-sustainable-new-addition.html?_r=0
