about the Nancy an Rich Kinder Building:
The translucent Nancy and Rich Kinder Building, dedicated to art after 1900 from the MFAH collections, will stand in complementary contrast to the Ludwig Mies van der Rohe–designed Caroline Wiess Law Building (1958/74) and stone facade of Rafael Moneo’s Audrey Jones Beck Building (2000).
Highlights of the Nancy and Rich Kinder Building
Gathered under a “luminous canopy” roof, the concave curves reference the billowing clouds that fill the “big sky” of Texas
Vertical, translucent-glass tubes cladding the facades
Two floors and more than 100,000 square feet of exhibition space circling a three-level atrium space, with the distinctive roof allowing natural light to flood the central spaces
Increases overall MFAH exhibition space by nearly 75 percent
The 215-seat Lynn Wyatt Theater; a restaurant; and a café
Seven gardens and six reflecting pools inset along the building’s perimeter
