While many other photographers documented the new Renzo Piano Pavilion at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas (including Richard Barnes for ARCHITECT), Nic Lehoux spent several days documenting the project for architect Renzo Piano, Hon. FAIA, and the design team at Renzo Piano Building Workshop, as well as the lighting designers at Arup. Here are a selection of his photos, showcasing the architect's view of the building.
