The Clyfford Still Museum, designed by Portland's Brad Cloepfil
and his team at Allied Works Architecture
is due to open in November this year. So how does it look? Check out these exterior photos from August by Portlander Tom Byrne. Cloepfil discussed the design with us a few years ago
if you want a little more background.
Overall, this from the ground up project has the potential to be Brad's best work since his breakout W+K headquarters in Portland and I like how the textured gray concrete is catching the warmer sunset tones here. It's a contrast of lightness and heavier elements and has sme nice proportions in comparison to the Libeskind next door. Hopefully the interior works because Clyfford Still (from Spokane WA) is one of my all time favorite artists and the USA doesn't have enough single artist museums.
