Although the skyscraper in Manhattan was a town more overcrowded than imagination, and exciting, it was full of the warmth of nostalgia or a man.The subway and the bus used easily, and a very lucid city. A town complicated by a multi race was very natural, and it all looked energetic bright.

Musée du Quai Branly in Paris

025Since The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, museum buildings became larger in the presence and appeal to tourists (and the Jewish Museum Berlin). I think the next theme is the relationship between content and exhibition space.

Musée du quai Branly case, it was a major theme of the collection assessment and deployment of non-European, but this novel architecture, at the same time, relationships and attractive exhibition.

It is a single building is not visible, and still aim to harmonize the various complex. Without a sense of proportion to intimidate, leaving off the building,  I felt like a built environment.

Lush trees, and also into the wind as the landscape, the exhibition space before the actual go and walk a long slope. Done to the floor several images, as an effective sign and also acts as a change of heart.
