The EMP Museum in Seattle, Washington, was designed by Frank Gehry and built in the early 2000’s. Previously known as the Experience Music Project, the EMP Museum is a pop culture museum. The design for the exterior of the building was intended to reflect the feeling of rock and roll and provide a beautiful contrast with the older, more traditional surrounding architecture. The exterior is built from shingles made of aluminum and stainless steel, each of which was individually manufactured. The bold colors and shapes are very characteristic of Gehry’s work as a whole, and provide a unique and beautiful exterior that truly suits the topic of the museum it houses.
