UC Berkeley is planning a new building to house their art museum and film archive. The Chron has all the information on the new project, which is designed by renowned architect Toyo Ito.

According to the article, Ito set out to create a space that enables fluidity of movement, thus allowing the building to provide for changing art exhibitions and needs of the students. We like the comparison the author makes of the flowing walls to "ribbons or drapes", and by looking at the pictures, it seems to be an apt description. The building isn't set to open until 2013, but we're already excited to see the final project.
