The first stand-alone museum building for the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University and a cornerstone for the arts at Duke and in the region. 

Five pavilions are arranged in the landscape to take advantage of the natural contours and open meadows of the site, reinforcing the seamless transition from interior to exterior. Arranged in a radial pattern, the pavilions define an irregular, pentagonal central courtyard, which is covered by a light canopy of glass and steel. Full-height glass walls and a green slate floor connect the pavilions and further blur the division between building and nature. Materials used in the construction were; precast concrete, glass, green slate, oak and beech wood.
