aspen's art

Our friends in Aspen have exciting news, Aspen Art Museum is opening in two short days! On August 9th, the art museum, designed by Shigeru Ban, will open in downtown Aspen, right outside of Ajax Mountain. The woven wood on the exterior of the building blends in beautifully with the view from the museum. Three Sixty Design loves the glass panels in the floor that connects the indoor and outdoor with the use of natural light. The views of Ajax Mountain through the glass also allow for this connection. Ban decided to make the entrance to the beautiful museum on the top of the roof to create the feeling of skiing down a mountain. Take a look at designboom's article for more pictures and information. Shigeru Ban's creative work at Aspen Art Museum is just another reason to visit the beautiful ski town.
