Modern Art Museum, Munich

    Newer Older

    The modern art museum (or Pinakothek der Moderne) in Munich, Germany, is a building with an appealing internal architectural design. The simple but elegant composition of white and gray concrete walls, columns and curves is so clean and understated that I kind of had the feeling that I was inside an architectural model rather than an actual building. This picture --- a look into the central rotunda -- shows some of this model-like elegance.

    The building was designed by German architect Stephan Braunfels and opened in 2002.

      I like the way the green of the glass forms an accent in an otherwise almost monochrome image.

      rocurti - yes, thank you, I find that very appealing also. Looks almost like selective use of color when in fact it was just naturally that way since the walls and columns of the museum are in white and gray.

      Very nice work with light, shadow and form. The limited palette adds to the cool clean look of the environment, and creates a somewhat sterile ambience, almost to the point of geometic abstraction, an effect your precise composition enhances.

      splinx - wow, very eloquent commentary, and very keen observations. You clearly have an artistic eye, and I always enjoy your input a lot. Thank you for stopping by.

      Tja... eiðibýlið við Straumsvík var flottara! (djók)
      Þetta er mjög skemmtileg mynd - þvílík spil með birtuna í þessari byggingu.
