On our way to Washington D.C. we stopped off at Glenstone in Maryland which opened in 2006 as a way to experience art within nature and minimal architecture. There was so many gems that would make any art collector quiver in their boots. Charles Gwathmmey designed the first museum building, followed by Thomas Phifer who created 50,000 sq. ft. of pavilions.
The architecture was influenced by the Ryōan-ji Zen temple in Kyoto, The Menil Collection in Texas which I visited two months ago, and Denmark’s Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.
