The MAXXI Museum

This morning I visited the MAXXI Museum, Italy's National Museum of the 21st Century. The building was designed by Zaha Hadid who is a world renowned modern architect known best for her revolutionary sculptural building designs. Visiting the MAXXI reminded me alot of when I visited the ICA in Boston or the Guggenheim in New York City. The building is the exhibit, not the art that hides in the few galleries placed sporadically throughout the many floors. Even though the art was somewhat of a disappointment the building was so unique, modern, and out of place in the ancient city of Rome that it was quite an enjoyable experience.
