de Young museum, San Francisco

 

 

 

 

 

 

On our last day in California last week  we had fun taking photographs in and around the de Young art museum in San Francisco’s Golden Gate park. The building itself is an interesting design by the same architect who designed China’s Olympic Bird’s Nest stadium, as our architecture-mad son was quick to point out. It is clad in copper with lots of circular designs and perforations, which is echoed in the large display in the main lobby. In time the brown copper walls will turn green with age to blend in fully with the park setting.
