Anton Grassl photographs the Center for Asian Art at the Ringling Museum by Machado and Silvetti

Anton photographed the new Center for Asian Art at the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida. Designed by Machado and Silvetti, the addition to the museum is clad with terra cotta tiles. Machado has said, “The color was chosen because of the green tile in Chinese architecture and gardens, and the green jade sculptures that are part of the collection”.
