This recent posting of OMA designing the Marina Abramovic Institute brings to light the age old question of how can architects make innovative space – without detracting from the art? and here, this building  serves as more of an active role than simply a gallery, perhaps due to her body of work, being very physical and performative.  It’s less about perfectly lighting a painting and providing ample room to view it.  Instead, she charges spaces and interactions and it’ll be interesting to see if the architecture can live up to it, rather than distract from it!
