Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Cleveland, Ohio

We drove along the shore of the city early morning to see I.M. Pei’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The weather was sunny and the ocean air felt great. Along the coastline, sits simple geometric white masses, plainly gridded in black. The pyramid form is the entrance building, with spaces created around the open, four-storey open space. Skylights pour into the massive, open, multiple-storey atrium, and the gridded mullions cast a everchanging shadow on the gridded white interior walls.
