museum brandhorst

On May 21, 2009 a museum housing the amazing private collection of 20th and 21st century art from Udo and Anette Brandhorst, will be opening it's doors in Münich. Being a Cy Twombly fan, this museum has a priority spot on my places to see list if only to see his series of "Rose" paintings. The museum itself(designed by Sauerbruch Hutton) looks like a huge strip quilt. The facade has 36,000 ceramic strips in varying shades of 23 different colors. There is a great flickr group on the museum's facade (where the images above were taken from) that can be seen here. More info on the museum and it's collection can be found here.
