As long as we're on the subject of Stanley Saitowitz, his firm's biggest project in recent memory, the Tampa Museum of Art, gets highlighted today on ArchDaily with an extensive gallery. The museum — which a writer called a "silent framework for the art within," rather than a piece of sculpture in itself — opened last month to the public. Maybe that's not entirely achievable, but the "beautiful jewel box"/"treasure chest" metaphor works too. The museum, which takes the place of the old riverfront structure, is actually the second stab at a redesign for the institution, which had axed an earlier one by architect Rafael Viñoly.
