Frank Gehry, OHR o'Keefe museum it has been modified: 2010-11-08 di Benedict Flowers

The recent new opening is the first phase of the OHR O'Keefe museum of art in Biloxi, Mississippi, designed by Frank Gehry.
Located within a grove of ancient holm oak trees, Gehry conceived the O'Keefe OHR project as a series of six small pavilions woven between the trees and connected

from a brick plaza, creating an inviting and lively arts campus that maintains the current park setting and favors pedestrian traffic within the site. the whole system uses a micropile foundation system to minimize the impact on the oak tree root system.
The use of local materials, the use of references to the local vernacular, the scale and position of each of the pavilions on the site, represent the sensitive response to the conditions of the place and the context of the surrounding area. the 25 square meters of the OHR O'Keefe - museum campus offer facilities for art exhibitions, education, cultural and social events.
