Holl's Lens #1

Matt the Architect came through with more pics of the controversial Steven Holl-designed addition to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

Previously, I posted some aerial photos of the project, as well as some interior shots I got during a private tour (yes, I am that special).

I really like the sunset picture. Thanks for the new pics, Matt.

  1. These are great pics. I'm excited to see not just the new space but the uses to which it is put.

  2. Is that a giant shuttlecock? If so, it appears to me to be inverted: the heavy end is nearly always pointed downward when low to the ground. The only time a shuttlecock looks like that is after being struck upwards. But the size of the sculpture does not suggest flight (at least to me); it looks too heavy. I guess I would prefer it if the piece were descending (shuttlecocks, after all, do not suggest escape or space adventure), tipped in anticipation of getting blasted by a mighty racket.

    I too like the sunset pic.



  3. OMG...LOL...There's a birdie in the picture! Anyone want to play Badminton????

    That brought back some memories from when I was a kid.

    I think I'll go get a set and play with the kids, I loved that game!


    Oh, yea...nice sunset...

  4. LOL @ the word shuttlecock..I am so mature.


Your turn to riff...
