Tour an Ohio Art Museum's Sleek Copper Extension

Well this is quite nice. The Columbus Art Museum recently got a 50,000-square-foot extension, courtesy of local firm Designgroup and it's a limestone-and-glass jewel box of a building, clad in pre-patinated get-the-Lady-Liberty-look, faster! copper. The new, light-filled interiors are a hybrid of contemporary clean lines and the neoclassical details visible on exposed portions of the original structure's facade. In addition to the increased exhibition space indoors, the museum's annex is also home to a new sculpture garden. It's the third phase of a three-pronged restoration of the museum. Check it out!
