The Lahore Museum (Punjabi: لاہور میوزیم, Urdu: لاہور عجائب گھر‎), was originally established in 1865-66 on the site of the hall or building of the 1864 Punjab Exhibition[2] and later shifted to its present site located on The Mall, Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan in 1894. Rudyard Kipling's father, John Lockwood Kipling, was one of the earliest and most famous curators of the museum.[3] Over 250,000 visitors were registered in 2005.[1] The current building of Lahore Museum was designed by the well-known architect Sir Ganga Ram. The Museum is the biggest museum of the country.

The Museum contains some fine specimens of Mughal and Sikh door-ways and wood-work and has a large collection of paintings dating back to the Mughal, Sikh and British periods. It includes a collection of musical instruments, ancient jewellery, textiles, pottery, and armory. There are important relics from the Indus Valley civilisation, Gandhara and Graeco-Bactrian periods as well as some Tibetan and Nepalese work on display. The museum has a number of Greco-Buddhist sculptures, Mughal and Pahari paintings on display.The Fasting Buddha from the Gandhara period is one of the most famous objects of the museum. The ceiling of the entrance hall features a large mural by renowned Pakistani artist Sadequain.

The Museum displays archaeological material from pre-historic times to the Hindu Shahi period. It has one of the largest collections of archaeology, history, arts, fine arts, applied arts,ethnology, and craft objects in Pakistan.It also has an extensive collection of Hellenistic and Mughal coins. A photo gallery is dedicated to the emerging of Pakistan as a state.

New wing of the SF Museum of Modern Art opens May 14 and the architectural reviews are coming in. This is a massive structure now:

Quote:
In that the new SFMOMA boasts as much exhibition space as New York’s Whitney Museum and the Museum of Modern Art combined, San Francisco now possesses the most stunning iteration of the conventional gigantic modern art museum in the country.
http://www.wsj.com/articles/in-san-f...the-1462227374

And that is a surprising admission by a New York based media source.

A nice summary of the reviews so far:

Quote:
Early Reactions To New SFMOMA Building Very Mixed, Include IKEA Comparison
BY JAY BARMANN IN ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT ON APR 29, 2016 3:35 PM



The bold, new Snøhetta-designed addition to the SFMOMA . . . is already garnering some mixed emotions from architecture critics . . . .

The LA Times' Christopher Hawthorne says the new structure "doesn't merely extend but performs a smooth lobotomy on the museum's existing building." He calls it "handsome, carefully intelligent, self-effacing and agreeable," but he also seems to say that the museum probably should have just knocked down the old Mario Botta-designed building (which is only 21 years old) and started fresh, just because of the awkwardness with which the architects had to wedge the huge new structure onto the rear of the site. He does, say, though, "The renderings suggested it might be some giant iceberg or museum-world cruise ship, sliding its overwhelming bulk into port just behind Botta's brick-wrapped wedding cake. In fact the final product is quite efficiently tucked away on a tricky and constrained site."

The New York Times' Jori Finkel calls it "a dynamic white structure that resembles a cruise ship," . . . . Buenos Aires-based architect Diana Schimmel (says), "Who would match a Botta building with a Snøhetta building? It really is a challenge. They are as crazy as me."

The real burns, so far, come from UK Guardian critic Oliver Wainwright, who writes of the architects' inspiration from SF's famous fog, "Fog isn’t the first thing that springs to mind when you encounter the rippling white cliff face that now looms behind the museum’s original home... It looks more like a gigantic meringue, a building-sized baked Alaska slumped on the skyline between Botta’s weighty temple and the elegant Art Deco tower of the Pacific Bell building behind." He hates what happened to the original Third Street lobby, where the old staircase has been replaced with a "jaunty" angled wood one that leads to the new second-floor lobby: "The effect is like erecting an IKEA flat-pack in a temple, the blonde wood jarring with the weighty granite columns."

And he doesn't stop there.

Clad in undulating panels of white fibre-reinforced polymer, which are intended to recall both fog and the rippling water in the bay, the building has a inescapable flimsiness, as if has been carved from polystyrene like the architectural models on display inside. The form is sliced flat where it meets the street, creating a shear surface “like a rock cracked open”, say the architects; but, clad with back-painted white glass, it instead presents the dumb elevation of a generic department store. Compared to the carefully detailed brickwork and banded granite blocks of the Botta building next door, the whole thing feels a bit cheap, in both material quality and architectural thinking . . . .

I think the building is cool, and I appreciate any effort to liven San Francisco's all-too-boring skyline with as boldly shaped a thing as this is. The interiors work especially well — though in adding such vast amounts of gallery space that flows into the original galleries, people are bound to get lost. The LA Times guy has a point, though, when he says the building "is everywhere shaved off and pinned back, forever curving away from you." This seems in part to have been a way of approaching the awkwardness of the site itself, hemmed in by taller buildings, wrapping around the W Hotel, and wedged in, mid-block, where the handsomest face of the building can't even really be appreciated — unless, that is, you're on one of the upper floors of the Pacific Bell/Yelp building behind it . . . .

As for the Botta building, I was never the hugest fan, it feels sort of stuck in the '80s, but I guess it would have been hard to justify demolishing something built 21 years ago, at great expense, that no doubt some surviving board members helped get built. I just wish that that undulating, rippled Snøhetta building could have existed somewhere else, on a hill or among trees in Golden Gate Park, where the fog image would have worked a bit better.



I totally agree about the lobby (boldfaced).

Botta with Snohetta behind:

Cool thread

I was recently looking at a museum app where you can take a VR tour of a reconstructed old city, check it out by searching "theConstruct theMuseum" on the app store or Google Play
