    This is our controversial museum in Luxemburg, the MUDAM (musee d'art moderne Grand duc Jean).

    It is a very interesting structure because the architect embedded a very old part of the "fortress" of Luxemburg city (called "drei Eechelen" --->three acorns?)into the museum.. I really like this old vs new structure....

    I couldn't get many angles on the building because they are still working on the site and I already had to sneak in to get these shots...

    Tell me what you think, any comment is welcome!

    Beautiful angles chosen on an interesting piece of architecture, I must say. I like each and every one of these, what with the lines and curves and different materials, as the light stone work and the blue-tinted glass. My two favourites are those that show how the new was designed around the old, which is why I really like the Photos 2 and 3. But 4 does, indeed, have the most pleasantly flowing curves!

    Nice angles!
    You did a great job capturing the feel of the building!
    Well worth the sneaking!

    Thank you for the comments! I'll go back to the place as soon as it is open to public... maybe I'll be able to get some shots from the inside...
