Museum Piece: The Minguren Museum by George Nakashima-
The Minguren Museum was completed in 1967. It features a curved thin shell roof, something that Nakashima experimented with throughout his career. The mosaic by Ben Shahn was installed in 1972 posthumously from sketches that he had made. As with all of Nakashima’s architecture the flow between inside and outside spaces is important and these boundaries are blurred. The museum also features a cantilever staircase.
