Beyeler Foundation Museum, Switzerland – Renzo Piano
This building is one of the Piano work that can best green architecture of Piano. Indeed, without knowing the building history or background, when I saw the pictures of the museum, I though that it was there before the plants. It seems like the plants are growing from the house. Also, the style of the house looks like a old fashioned European style.
However, the Beyeler Museum building, designed by the architect Renzo Piano, was completed in 1997 . In order to make the building look like a very old building , Piano used material to built the building is natural stone blended into lanscape. Also, as most green architect work, the building use mostly solar energy through the solar panels located on its top .
