Renzo Piano Builds for the 21st Century
Menil Collection, Houston
Piano's design for this museum, which opened its doors in 1987, was very different from the Pompidou. A subdued, low rise structure, it features a much admired roof and skylight system that admits natural light into the galleries in a controlled way.
