Mosaic Masterpiece

Munich continues to expand its extensive museum district, with the coming addition of the Brandhorts Museum opening this year. The museum will be an extension of the Pinakothek der Moderne, and will display illustrated books from Pablo Picasso, as well as modern works by Andy Warhol and others. The most striking point of the museum though is the exterior though, detailed with three color mosaic zones. Composed of multiple layers of varying opacity, the appearance of the skin will change when seen from near and far, appearing more uniform for distance, revealing greater subtlety when approached.

That looks and sounds gorgeous. A piece of art itself for the home of other artworks.
