Project in Profile: Anchorage Museum Expansion

Just thought I'd go out this morning to take some pics of the new Anchorage Museum as it nears completion with just finishing touches left until it opens later this year. From the time the museum staff were seeking architects for a proposal, to the ribbon cutting ceremony not long from now, it will have been about seven years in the making for this project to be complete. At least for me, this project felt like an eternity, but maybe I was over-anxious for this one. By the way, on the bottom row I took a pic of the sign announcing the new museum which I didn't notice until now still pictures the old design proposal before architect David Chipperfield made the redesign.
