Light catches glass, catches colour,
creates contrast on walls and water.
Light leans in and leaves illusions
on lines where once there was shadow,
buildings become boats baring sails
to beckon the breeze which billows
at its ease through colour caught
on glass which is captured in light.

    1. It’s actually a museum of modern art, The Louis Vuitton Foundation designed by Frank Gehry so it does have wings like any museum, if you will. Actually there are 12 ‘sails’ in total though normally all clear glass but there was a French artist Daniel Buren who painted the 3600 pieces of glass a few years ago in an expo called Observatory of Light and that’s when I took the pic and it did look like a sailing ship at the time. It’s in the middle of a forest on the edge of Paris. 🤗🤗

      1. Gehry knows how to make buildings move. He’s not so great on the engineering though–my brother worked in one of his buildings and they could never stop all the leaks.
        What a wonderful idea to turn the windows into colored light!

      2. Was Gehry of Dutch ancestry- I lived in the Netherlands for 10 years and there wasn’t a Plummer in sight who could fix a leak! Hilarious when most of the land is reclaimed from the sea!!! 🤭

    2. I just remembered there are a few more pictures of this stunning building my wordless Wednesday post later today of museums. Happy Wednesday 🕺🏻
