Renzo Piano's Beyeler Foundation

  • Comment

Renzo Piano's Beyeler Foundation near Basle, which opened in October, was highly praised by Raymund Ryan in the December issue of The Architectural Review.

Glass-roofed, with walls of porphyry, it houses the fine collection of twentieth-century art amassed by Basle-based dealer Ernst Beyeler over the last 50 years. 16 pages of Fondation Beyeler (Prestel, 1997. 350pp. £39.95) give glimpses of the building, while the rest are devoted to full- page colour reproductions of the art works. Picasso, Leger, Mondrian and Matisse have starring roles.
