Angles, angles everywhere — and shadow accompanying them:
An entrance hallway to the new Stone Hill Center at the outstanding regional art museum, the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, MA, designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, who is renowned for harmonizing his buildings with the site which contains them. He often works in cast-in-place concrete, as here.
When the renewal of the Clark’s buildings and grounds is ultimately finished, an already beautiful campus will be further transformed by, among other things, a “water feature,” something Ando is extremely fond of, which will be reflecting pool by summer, skating rink by winter.
Meanwhile, there are already plenty of angles and shadows, so Japanese in aesthetic, for the visitor’s visual delight.
