Renzo Piano’s Architectural Masterpiece
The building that houses the Nasher, designed by Renzo Piano and Peter Walker, is itself a work of art, with a glass roof designed to shower the space with filtered sunlight. However, construction of a nearby luxury condominium tower with a glass skin stirred up a “glare dispute” controversy, as it has reflected too much sun and flooded the Nasher with light.
