Slideshow: Beyeler Foundation Art Museum - Basel, Switzerland - designed by Renzo Piano


Renzo Piano's creative genius is derived from his uncanny ability to adapt his style to fit the surrounding context. This building takes a step back from the high tech aesthetic of many Piano buildings, and sits comfortably in a suburban setting, overlooking a farm field and rolling hills in the near distance. The light is carefully controlled to naturally illuminate the galleries while the materials are simple, elegant, and complement the art and natural surroundings.
