PIECES OF THE PUZZLE

“Beauty is the adjustment of all parts proportionately so that one cannot add or subtract or change without impairing the harmony of the whole.”

-Leon Battista Alberti

The Cloisters, a museum in Fort Tryon Park in Washington Heights, integrated parts from five European medieval abbeys to create a new building. Here you can see these pieces brought from the past as the precedent and foundation to a great design.
