KIMBELL ART MUSEUM UNVEILS NEW MUSEUM BUILDING BY RENZO PIANO BUILDING WORKSHOP
The new Renzo Piano designed pavilion is now open at the Kimbell Art Museum. Surrounded by elms and red oaks, Renzo Piano’s 101,130-square-foot colonnaded pavilion stands as an expression of simplicity and lightness—glass, concrete and wood—some 65 yards to the west of Louis I. Kahn’s signature cycloid-vaulted museum of 1972. Inaugurating the pavilion is an exhibition of masterworks from the Kimbell’s permanent collection.
