You've no doubt seen the photos (and photos, and photos, and photos, and photos) of the new Renzo Piano Pavilion at the Kimbell Art Museum designed by Renzo Piano, Hon. FAIA. It ranks up there as one of the most photographed buildings of 2013. But to understand how all of those glass, concrete, and wood spaces fit together, we've compiled the plans, sections, details, and drawings from the maestro's newest museum, including some of Piano's signature hand-drawn concept sketches.
