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?
Proof that I came to work …… worked out well after some pages mysteriously exited the book.
Spent some time gawking at this set of buildings and learned that the author of Gone With the Wind lives here ::)
More than meets the eye
From there, it was on to the High…
Took a while to find the entrance: but this is the old one
Here we gooo…
*SIGH* No comment…
The everlasting ramp …
Bet your butt it’s comfy 😛
One of the bridges: n my classmates – hope they don’t sue me for this lol
Uhmmmm … I really can’t explain this
After much deliberation and analysis I concluded that this was public domain and took a seat
Ahmnnn … The religious/folk art section.
