The Eastside's art museum was imagined, in the boom days of the '90s, as a cutting-edge contemporary art center located inside a designer building. Steven Holl provided the designer building but contemporary art didn't draw the crowds, so the museum regrouped into an art, craft, and design showplace—and thanks to good curators, there's still plenty of contemporary art. Plus, the building actually works best for 3D craft and design.
