We were in Saratoga last Wednesday for a meeting and decided to stop by the Tang Museum to see what’s new and get fresh dose of inspiration. Here’s what caught our eye:
Walking into the atrium, we were immediately annoyed by Type A’s Barrier installation, which is precisely the point. It’s in the way. It impedes the view. You have to walk around it. Post-911, concrete barriers are ubiquitous; these barriers, gracefully arching, as smooth as marble and beautifully made, force the viewer’s attention both to their physical presence and their space-controlling function.
