Planar House- Simple Stunning Architecture o4

Planar House 1I was stunned by THIS! via materialicious & still am. Did u see how the light try to escape squeezing through unsymetrical holes on the perforated sheet & in between gaps of the wall?
Planar House (United States, 2002-2005) design by steven holl architects as simply describe by materialicious is from tilt-up concrete walls and Cor-Ten steel panels. It was meant to house a large contemporary art collection of Great 20th century works by Bruce Nauman, Robert Ryman, Jeff Koons and Jannis Kounellis which includes important video artworks.
