The Stedelijk Museum:


Completed in 2012, the Stedelijk Museum is slowly but surely being absorbed within and by the entities that so proudly surround it. Now, anchoring the southwestern edge of Musemplein, this shiny new house for contemporary art within the city of Amsterdam is settling into its new home. Each day, as I cycle past it, the early morning colors of the autumnal sunlight that it so effortlessly reflects, changes and undulates as the sun strengthens. The museum is a canvas for the ever ephemeral light that radiates toward Earth from the welkin.
