Euphoric From The HIGH

My class went on a field trip to the High Museum of Arts in Atlanta… I really tried to cut down on the photos but it was really hard so I gave up after a while. The first section of the museum was designed by Mr. 3×3 Richard Meier. There was no mistaking his pristine (well) white finish and the rigid geometry of the square and circle. For a second I thought I was at The Getty (Studied that one for a project in undergrad – imagine a play area conforming to his geometry. I made it work 🙂 ) The addition was by Renzo Piano … the King (or perhaps one of) detailing. His configuration was that of a 4×12 scheme. Each I’ll admit had their unique elements and connected the galleries by two overhead bridges We were given an official tour by the facilities manager and had the amazing experience of getting up onto the roof and seeing the back of house layout. Ok ok .. I’ll stop typing and just get on to the photos … a thousand words huh?
