"joy is not necessarily stupid"

 Here is a great little interview with museum architect extraordinaire Renzo Piano. He just finished up the addition to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston and I can't wait to check it out myself someday. While studying architecture during my junior year abroad in Florence I discovered Mr. Piano's work and was completely enthralled. His designs encompass everything I loved about the architecture in Italy. They flawlessly connect to the past while being completely contemporary, the experience of being in the space is so thoughtfully considered and beauty is completely tied to functionality.
Here is his recent addition to the LACMA which during my visit I found much more compelling than  some of the art inside.
