The Dali Museum: Beautiful Architecture by HOK

The new location of The Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg opened on January 11 of this year. Designed by HOK, the architecture of the building is mysterious and extraordinary, much like the contents of the museum itself.

The museum was also designed to withstand the natural weather of the Florida waterfront, with thick concrete walls to protect the priceless work from tsunamis. Formally, love how the undulating design of glass and windows reflect the environment, literally and figuratively.
