A serene East Asian feeling pervades the design of this templelike building dedicated to contemporary art. White brick with granite accents is used for the exterior wall surfaces, and darkstained wood surrounds the doors and windows. An extended, hip-roofed entrance canopy draws the visitor toward the generously proportioned interior spaces, including offices, galleries, an auditorium, and a central, twostory enclosed court.
