Also Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA)in Queensland.

It seems that I really liked the relaxed atmosphere in Vienna! The next photo and some other also would like to be shown.
mumok, full name "MUseum MOderner Kunst" (English: Museum of Modern Art) Foundation Ludwig Vienna, is a museum in the Museumsquartier in Vienna, Austria.

Have you never been to MOCAK? Museum Of Contemporary Art in Krakow. It's a very nice museum, quite new I think, next door to the Schindler's factory, south of the river.
This is also a nice building, although it looks very compact. The outdoor area could be a pleasant place to spend some time after getting tired from watching the art.

There is a museum called MONA, Museum of Old and New Art, in Hobart, Tasmania, a place I shall be visiting on my upcoming trip to OZ. I like very the point of view and the lively atmosphere. The blue settees add some contrasting splashes of colour and serve to give the image depth. The lady looking over the wall is well placed and a nice addition; we are feel as if we are joining with her to survey the scene. Fine presentation with very good detail.

thought you were talking in code when I saw the title, and yes, I suppose you are. It seems to be something about the modern age and the way most people abbreviate everything especially when texting on mobiles. It even happens here, with LOL, FG, TFS, B&W, DOF Etc. :-). Great shot by the way of this amazing looking museum. I particularly like the seating here too - very imaginative. BFN (bye for now).
Regards - B.

Te skrótowce to efekt wygody wymawiających, są szybsze do wymówienia niż pełna nazwa, dobrze ujęty budynek, ale dla mnie trochę przyciężkawy jak bunkier

Yes, our world is full of abbreviations that nobody really understands. Are we to lazy to read and write full words ...? Just look at the horrible use of language in text messages, anyway often when I get one of one of my sons, I don't understand a word of it.
Having said that, this is a great scene of modern Vienna with the cubus of the museum and the attractive seating area in front of it.
have a great day

posso darti questo:
Lu.C.C.A. ovvero Lucca Center Contemporary Art.
Con un cielo blu sarebbe stato tutto più bello, ma in questo caso la condivisione di questo museo e dell'ambiente circostante è più importante del cielo.

Très bonne présentation de ce musée et bravo pour l'analyse des noms donnés à certains musées.
Architecture hautement contemporaine avec des meurtrières (nouveau forme de château moderne ?).
Un lieu de relaxation à voir les personnages entourant le musée.

Niezwykla budowla w Wiedniu. Nowoczesna. No i to otoczenie. A nastroj faktycznie relaksacji - to widac. Dziwne te nazwy, zapamietalas dajac takie porownanie.
Milego wieczornego relaksu zycze.
PS. Gwiazdki na lampach wychodza gdy przyslone dasz od f/11 wzwyz, najlepiej f/22, tylko, ze statyw niezbedny bo czasy sa dlugie.

Curious building and a good photo, no matter the sky is so dull. You succeeded in capturing the atmosphere of the place, that, like you say, looks quite relaxed. I like also the presence of the woman on the right, who is seeing almost the same scene we are.

Przybylo troche zdjec; nie zawsze jest czas zeby poogladac a jeszcze mniej zeby zostawic komentarz. Z mojego podworka to MS czyli muzeum sztuki, ale niedugo pochlonie mnie SOFA (solidarity of Arts)- tak wiem to skrotowiec od imprezy ale jakos tak mi sie nasunelo.
Budynek swoj urok ma choc trudno jednoznacznie go sklasyfikowac zerojedynkowo - ladny, brzydki - na pewno wyroznia sie i bardzo dobrze ze go pokazalas

so you found Vienna to have a relaxed feel and vibe to it, good to know b/c tosca enjoys those types of cities most.
and for me, this is the type of architecture i enjoy.
so maybe its a good fit.
too bad the sky was so white and harsh at this time of day, but what could you really do?
love the relaxed feel with the couches as well, i know i would have taken the time to chill :)
nice modern feel here, i like it.
sorry to hear you don't like plane photos, but i'll be posting several more
