Architecture, Art, Fashion
This past weekend my sister, my niece and I went to explore Kimbell Art Museum. Being an architecture lover, Louis Khan is a big deal, so I had to make Kimbell my first Dallas museum experience. Check it out!
I love travertine.. So Italian!
thanks for the beauty, Louis Kahn
The genius of Louis Kahn. Sexy concrete… I love concrete when it is used well. Travertine, it put me back in Italy for a second. And the slivers of light. This building is straight to the point, and sexy. I can’t wait to explore the new addition when it opens in November. That is all. Read more about the architecture of Kimbell Art Museum.
Composition – Piet Mondrian 20° c.
Mondrian, oh Mondrian.

call me the 5th figure on the stairs.. their faces are hilarious and it looks like they’re staring right at you when you’re standing in front of it.
