Stairway - checkered - strip

By bliba  
The Groninger Museum is well-known for its exceptional and colourful building and also because of its fascinating exhibitions and intriguing collection.The Groninger Museum has proven over the years that a museum can be a place for both study and relaxation. It is bursting with artistic energy, which is obvious as you pass by.

The Groninger Museum reopend in 1994. Right from the outset, it was certain that the new Groninger Museum would be designed by several architects. Alessandro Mendini chose designers and architects for this purpose: Philipe Starck, Michele de Lucchi and Coop Himmelb(l)au.

I suspect that in colour we would not even notice the lady - and she's wearing a Bridget Riley cardigan. I wonder if the pattern is making her eyes go as funny as mine? I love the way she is looking in, away from the symmetry of the two men at their desks. (I doubt that I would have noticed them in colour either...)

Cleverly constructed, composed and taken. The varied planes almost render this surreal.

I think Ivor's comment of visually demanding hits the nail on the head! Must be very difficult to look at in person.
