Concierge.com's insider take:
If Louis Kahn's Kimbell Museum is regarded as one of the best buildings of the last century, Tadao Ando's new Fort Worth Modern, just across the street, may well stand up as one of this century's finest. Dramatic, 40-foot-tall Y-shaped concrete columns support the flat, cantilevered roofs of the glassed-in, satiny-gray concrete galleriesthe entire structure seems to float in the immense reflecting pool. The collection stresses Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, and Minimalism. Touring exhibitions focus on major retrospectives of modern masters. The Café Modern has become a hot luncheon pick.
Open Tuesdays through Saturdays 10 am to 5 pm, Sundays 11 am to 5 pm.
