KIMBELL ART MUSEUM EXPANSION
2007 – 2013, FORT WORTH, U.S.A
The Kimbell Art Museum’s original building was designed by Louis Kahn in 1972. The new building by Renzo Piano Building Workshop establishes a close, respectful and frank dialogue with this powerful yet delicate older building. The new Renzo Piano Pavilion (named by the building’s owner) accommodates the museum’s growing exhibition and education programmes, allowing the original Kahn building to revert to the display of the museum’s permanent collection.
