The High Museum

On the last day of 2013, a friend and I took a trip to the High Museum in Atlanta.  While its collection of art is incredible, it's the architecture that really caught my eye that day.  From the street, its white exterior makes quite the statement among the cityscape.  And on the interior, it's hard not to take note of the smaller details - the openness, the use of natural light, the beautiful incorporation of something so seemingly mundane as handrails and ramps, even the placement of walls and columns is eye-catching.  In the words of the architect himself, "I believe that architecture has the power to inspire, to elevate the spirit, to feed both the mind and the body" - it's hard not to agree with his words after paying this place a visit.
