Amon Carter Online Projects

Filmed over three years, this documentary captures the creation and implementation of architect Tadao Ando's vision of a museum for the new millennium. The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth had its origins in the Fort Worth Public Library art collection, but Ando's vision has brought the building housing the collection into the 21st century. It is a good neighbor for the Kimbell Art Museum by Louis Kahn (with a soon-to-be-added Renzo Piano addition) and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art designed by Phillip Johnson.
