The new Nancy and Rich Kinder building stands as the central showpiece in the Museum of Fine Arts Houston campus redevelopment.
The Steven Holl Architects-designed structure is the final addition to the diverse portfolio of buildings at the heart of Houston’s museum district. Its glass facade offers a muted backdrop for the lush green live oak trees of the museum grounds during the day, and softly glows as a lantern beacon at night. The lighting was designed to position the building in the context of the city while shaping an intimate pedestrian experience for visitors.
