The new de young museum san Francisco



Finally after missing out seeing the new de young - last year big winds knocked out the power on the day I arrived- anyway what a great building and an interesting collection of art. Textiles, Pacific cultures and European arts with the eyes of early California really fresh and American. The building is the event though amazing spaces slivers of space link to each other and to internal landscaped courtyards. Color and texture -copper wall panels and the view tower 360*vistas but instead of feeling exposed or trapped in a glass box like most of these types of rooms - the ceiling extends from inside out to form this screen roof that invites the view -great.
