A walk through the historic National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC surprised me with this wonderful courtyard… A wavy glass–and–steel structure appeared to float over the courtyard, letting in natural light but protecting visitors from the elements.
The Robert and Arlene Kogod Courtyard is a part of the building that houses the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
The double–glazed glass panels are set in a grid completely supported by eight aluminum–clad columns located around the perimeter of the courtyard so that the weight of the roof does not affect the National Historic Landmark building.
“Every moment of light and dark is a miracle.”
