EMP museum of pop and science fiction, Seattle

The Experience Music Project (EMP) museum is one of the most extreme modern buildings we have ever seen. It is a collection of shine bright colors and even the Seattle Monorail run through it. The architectural style is called BLOB and its designer is Frank Gehry.

What's the shape of this building? Who knows, we just see a lot of curved elements. There is a Star Wars costume exhibition and I was rather happy to pose with a giant guitar. What a coincidence to see this piece of art, we were on our way to the Space Needle located in the same park.

Het Experience Music Project (EMP) museum is één van de meest extreme moderne gebouwen die we ooit hebben gezien. Het is een verzameling van felle blinkende kleuren en zelfs de Seattle Monorail rijdt door dit gebouw. De architectuur stijl is BLOB en werd ontworpen door Frank Gehry. 

Wat is in feite de vorm van het gebouw? Wie weet, we zien gewoon heel veel gebogen elementen. Er was een Star Wars kostuum tentoonstelling en ik was blij te kunnen poseren met een enorme gitaar. Wat een toeval dat we dit gebouw ontdekten, we waren onderweg naar de Space Needle die in hetzelfde park gelegen is.
