Kimbell by Khan and Piano


In today’s New York Times, the front page article in the Arts section is an article about the addition that Renzo Piano will propose for the Kimbell Arts Museum by Louis Khan. The article describes the conversation of the addition including the change in promenade that the addition will create, the ghostly duplicate (in plan) that the addition will appear to be, and how the buildings reflect who the respective architect looked up to. While Louis Khan looked up to the architects of antiquity, Renzo Piano worked with Louis Khan early in Piano’s carrer. The question I have for the addition is why the addition is all glass. While the Kimbel Art Museum is careful with its light manipulation, the glass addition is, well, just glass. What do you think?(via the NYTIMES )
