Last month I visited Forth Worth, Texas for my daughter’s gymnastics meet where, after a meet schedule change, I ended up having a free day. I started my little photo day with the Fort Worth Water Gardens which were across the street from our hotel.
I did a little research and found a couple museums that have some interesting architecture. First was the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth designed by Tadao Ando. Love the geometry in this building and the way the harsh midday light creates such strong shadows adding to this geometry.
Even the exhibits have great geometry.
Then a little play with shadows of organic materials for a little contrast.
A detail shot of the sculpture in the courtyard of the museum – Conjoined by Roxy Paine.
Thanks to a tip from an architect friend I headed across the street to the Kimbell Art Museum. Two great architects involved in this design – Louis Kahn and Renzo Piano (who also designed the modern wing of the Art Institute in Chicago). And a little bonus exhibit of one of my favorite painters – Monet, I actually caught this on its last day, a nice bit of luck.
Here are a few from the Louis Kahn building.
Then the Renzo Piano Pavilion.
On the way to the museums we crossed this interesting bridge – City of FortWorth West Seventh Street Bridge – so on my way back I decided to walk and grab some images.
Because it’s me, we all know there are many more images and color versions of most of what you see here, links below:
