A friend of mine studying at MSU sent me an image of this beautiful museum by Zaha Hadid Architects  which I found was a bit different than her other work yet still very powerful. The museum is known as The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum and is located at Michigan State University (MSU), Michigan, U.S.A.

This Museum at MSU will serve as both an educational resource for the campus community and a cultural hub. It will present contemporary works within a historical context through access to a study collection of more than 7,500 objects, ranging from the Greek and Roman periods to modern art.

“The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University is committed to exploring international contemporary culture and ideas through art. Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid, the museum features a striking façade of pleated stainless steel and glass, signaling the museum and the university’s dynamic vision. More than 70 percent of the 46,000-square-foot facility is dedicated to exhibition space. The museum is named for Eli and Edythe Broad, longtime supporters of Michigan State University, who provided the lead gift for the museum.”
