Fort Worth and the Kimball Museum

This entry is backposted to the time-period these photos were taken.

Here are some photos* Mr. F shot of the Kimball Museum when we were in Fort Worth, Texas.
The museum was designed by Louis Kahn. One great design element he uses is creating "a spine" along the ceiling of each long, narrow gallery, which brings in natural light, yet doesn't expose the artwork directly to the natural light. The light shines in and reflects off of the curved ceiling and wall. His execution is beautiful.


This photo, though not an exhibit room, it shows the spine.


A detail of the floor at a transition.
