GOMA

The Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow is a neoclassical building which features large airy spaces, huge windows, conventional rooms, tiny cosy nooks, darkened corners, an underground library, an interesting staircase and a lovely skylight.

Light flows very well so it’s a pleasure to be spending time in the gallery.

I particularly like the mirrored tympanum and the similarly mirrored vestibule, decorated by Niki de Saint Phalle. It’s a pity that I don’t seem to be able to find good photos online.

Instead here’s a photo of Niki in 1962.
