This is the Kunsten Museum of Modern Art which is located in Aalborg, Denmark. It was designed by famous architect Alvar Aalto, his second wife Elyssa, and his associate Jean-Jacues Baruel. There was a competition held to determine a design for the building and Alvar Aalto’s design won. The museum was completed in 1972. I really like how the building is shaped like a ziggurat. The ziggurat is a very unique building and I believe it works great being juxtaposed next to a hill covered with trees.
