#18 Akron, Ohio

We stumbled upon this great building here in Akron. It was designed by the Viennese architectural firm Coop Himmelb(l)au and is home to the Akron Museum of art. This is another example of what I talked about in my Book of Art reading # 12, )the trend of art museums to make the building the point of interest and destination rather than the art that’s housed inside. True art should be housed in nondescript, unobtrusive buildings. The people who come to view and contemplate the works of art should not be distracted by the architecture of the building
