Toledo Museum of Art
The Toledo Museum of Art Toledo, OH The focal point of Toledo’s architecture scene is the Toledo Museum of Art. Designed by Frank Gehry, its Center for the Visual Arts is a hulking assemblage of geometric forms wrapped in lead-coated copper. More recently, the museum debuted the postmodern Glass Pavilion, designed by Tokyo architectural firm SANAA. The award-winning building—which serves as both gallery and art studio—has more than 360 panels of glass in its exterior and interior walls.
