The new Nancy and Rich Kinder building is characterized by porosity, opening up the first floor on all elevations. Seven gardens cut the perimeter, marking entry points and punctuating the elevations. The largest garden court, at the corner of Bissonnet and Main Street, marks a central entry point into the new Museum of Fine Arts Houston campus. Standing in the Kinder Building’s new entry lobby, one can see Houston’s gardens and lush greenery in four directions and feel the energy that invites a new sense of openness to the community.

The open flow through the galleries is punctuated by views of the seven gardens with green trellises that offer shade from the glare. The galleries are centered on an open forum. The central gallery atrium provides generous spaces for art display and vertical circulation to the upper floors.
