Starchitecture: Zaha Hadid's Museum Is Lost In The Matrix

Since the MSU's Broad Art Museum in Lansing is missing that April opening date thanks to some faulty glass, we are forced to get our dose of Michigan starchitecutre in weird ways. Those would be virtual ways. MSU recently launched the Virtual Broad Museum, a digital manifestation of Architect Zaha Hadid’s vision. As ARTINFO described it, “with its eerie soundtrack and brightly-colored geometric shapes and artworks floating past, the museum seemed to us at times more like an acid trip gone awry than a visit to an art museum.”
