Late American artist Ellsworth Kelly designed this rainbow-windowed building for the University of Texas in Austin and the project became his last work of art. Known for his colorful yet minimal work, the artist created this building as his first ever three-dimensional project. Ellsworth gifted the one-of-a-kind design to the university, that raised $23 million dollars to complete it. The structure was modeled after a chapel, but the purpose of the building is to find joy and contemplation rather than any religious purposes.
Built from pale stone, the large rainbow-colored windows were added to give character to the minimal structure's design. The inside features multiple monochromatic paintings on marble panels and vibrant colors reflecting from the windows. The rainbow-windowed building is set to open on February 18th.
