Renzo Piano Wire

The Architects Newspaper has an in-depth look at how Renzo Piano's pavilion at the Kimbell Art Museum uses motorized louvers to dial in the right amount of natural light for each exhibit. When the Kimbell commissioned the Italian architect, they made it clear that they didn't want a knockoff of the Louis Kahn-designed main building, but a continuation of the same ambient light conditions was "the gold standard for us."
