Discussion 10/27/08

Today we talked about the choices Mario Botta made for the museum of Modern Arts. The choice he made to have horizontal lines on the outside, worked for the purpose of creating movement just like in the inside. By having all those horizontal lines it grounded the building and the use of the color of brick gives the building a more rustic old feeling. The color on the outside emphasizes the point of a museum which is keeping history ongoing . The circle on the top creates unity within everything that is going on around it. The use of a circle on top also shows how the continuation of events. Also presents the idea how new artists are born everyday and old ones will always be there, the continuation of life and memories. The vertical line that comes form the bottom up demonstrates growth, just like artist grow with each piece of art they create.sfmoma5002
