Architecture: Bechtler Museum of Modern Art

The light and shadows in those photographs! Love it!

While visiting Charlotte, NC this week, we decided to pop into the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. It's quite a small museum, but it had some great art. I really enjoyed the exhibition on Mario Botta, an architect who designed the museum itself! (Which we actually didn't know until the end, where there was a photo and model of the museum. Nice surprise!). I loved the way the exhibition was designed- with giant black and white photos of the architect's work accompanied by sketches and wooden models built to scale. The exhibition runs through July. 

Chicago circa 2009.
Anyone interested in architecture? Have a favorite building or architect?
