something old, something new

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston has opened the new 180 million dollar wing designed by famous architect Renzo Piano. Since 1903, the museum has impressed visitors with not only the beauty of the art and music it contained- the exquisite warmth and grace of the space fascinated them as well. Piano had the daunting task of expanding on the incredible building folks affectionately call "the Palace".
Piano connected the original, historic space by way of a glass passage to the modern glass structure that is now part of the grand Gardner Museum. The marriage of old and new appears to be a happy one. I can't wait to see it in person...... Link
