At the museum

Some museums are impressive not only for the content, but also for the building's architecture in itself. NYC's Guggenheim is a classic example. Just entering that space creates a special state of mind, opening the spirit to new aesthetic experiences.

In a smaller scale, Serralves Contemporary Art Museum, in Porto, is also a special place. It was designed by  Siza Vieira, a Portuguese architect whose style is marked by clean, straight lines and luminous spaces.

This is also a good location for exercising one's photographic skills, taking advantage of an unobtrusive camera. For now, here's the entrance hall. More to come.
