The Anderson Collection, Stanford University - This museum feels thoughtful, from the moment I walked into it I was forced to make a conscious choice to walk up the elongated stair path. It slowed down the journey throughout the museum, which made me appreciate the artwork that much more. This is at the top of my list as well because my first time ever visiting Stanford I walked through the Anderson Collection. The structure of pathways through the museum made the experience feel as though it was in slow motion, which makes me appreciate it that much more, as life at times can feel as though it is permanently in a state of fast forward.


The Broad, Los Angeles This entire museum looks and feels as though it is a piece of art itself. Walking in it is almost overwhelming how much the space has to offer, and it almost forces you to stay inside and explore for hours on end, as the art shared seems to never end. Some of the unique experiences, such as the Yayoi Kusama Infinity Mirrors exhibition, made this space more meaningful. But, even from the exterior, the space feels massive and powerful, yet encourages a viewer to come inside and explore. The porous nature of the facade causes a sense of intrigue that I could not help but want to explore.
