MAS - Museum an de Stroom.
During a two-day business trip I had some time to stroll through the old town and along the river Schelde in Antwerpen. An impressive city with so much nice archtecture. In the gallery I found 511 picture from Antwerpen, but I think it the first of the MAS
"A new museum in Antwerp about the river, the city, the port and the world" says the brochure about this museum. The MAS embodies the genius loci of Hanzestedenplaats. It is taking the place of the Hansa House, which was there until the end of the nineteenth century. This location played an important role in Antwerp’s history in the sixteenth century and the nineteenth century and will be doing so again, as a result of the development of the Eilandje district, which includes the construction of the MAS.
The museum will be opened end of 2009.

A good capture of this building still under construction by the looks of it. The rich red tones of the architecture make a nice contrast with the palish blue sky. Some pleasing light and shadow contrasts. Thanks for sharing.

A striking warm cold colour contrast, between the orange red facade of the 'under construction' musem, & the blue grey sky. Good sharpness & superbly composed. Tfs!

There is a great chromatic strength in this capture, the warm tones on this fantastic architecture give a great graphical result.
Good framing to place this impressive building in its urban environment.
A beautiful work.

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The boats are framing well the buildings. The point of view is allowing us to see the details and colors of the architecture of the museum. The evening light is bringing out the colors of the picture. Have a nice day.

I think there is too little modern architecture on TE. So I’m glad with your beautiful image of this remarkable museum at the border of the Schelde.
I’ll put the place on my list of interesting places to visit.

You attended to the birth of a an attractive work, uncommon by its unique design that you depicted using perfect vertical lines, in all fairness to the blueprints!!
Stunning view indeed.

Interesting modern architecture and a splendid light which emphasized the warm color tones of the museum.
I've noticed there is a mark(spot) in the sky...maybe a dust in the sensor(?)
pauloog (11747) 2009-08-28 11:23
A fine view of the new museum under construction in my home town. Probably not the last photo we will see of thsi building, but your view stands out because of the warm colours against a clear blue sky and the integration of the old ship docks.
sacimar (25975) 2009-08-28 11:34
interesting building, I like it, the colours and light management are great, good composition with excelent details, nice job,
Have a good weekend!
plimrn (21344) 2009-08-28 16:06
The late light really lights up this very attractive building. I also like the way you left plenty of space on the river.
pablominto (53744) 2009-09-01 22:59
The beautiful colour palette makes this scene eye-catching!
The brownish details in the structure contrasts so well with the blue sky, the composition is well balanced with sharp fine details...
JCG (35129) 2009-09-02 4:15
Resolutely modern architecture and which one will not be able to miss at the time of a visit of the city !!! Good framing of this building in construction. Beautiful light of end-of-day to emphasize the colors. Beautiful and interesting photograph, thank you Achim.
With all my friendships and a very good end-of-day,
jemaflor (80058) 2009-09-07 11:14
interesting architecture and colors with this warm light, beautiful reflection alos, maybe a vertical shot with more reflection would be also interesting ...
janneman (2460) 2009-09-21 4:48
a daring concept and a future landmark for this city!
Love the strong contrast between the red and orange tones and the softness of the blue sky.
