The Musee Des Confluences

One piece of architecture that I came across doing my COFA Digital Arch course was Coop Himmelb(l)au's Musee Des Confluences. The architecture is dynamic, overflowing with digital interpretations of design ideas and bursting with complexity and contemporary aesthetics.

The image above is from a short article from the World Architecture News site. The ARCspace article is a great read, showing the passion of the design plus a series of images and quotes. The images around the net are all from the Coop Himmelb(l)au site actually - check it out.

Youtube has a CG video for us on the design as well:
