Irwin states their purpose the building is simple: the intention is clearly, "to get you to a little more conscious than you had been your day before of just how stunning the planet is." Using the open skies Marfa is well-known for, the building are divided by light and black, constructed of black and white translucent scrim textile walls, that will answer the switching light through the day.
The Chinati Foundation normally presently looking for money through Kickstarter for yet another element of the building: an unconventional, meditative courtyard yard created by Irwin, that may feature a basalt stone column core sculpture alongside rows of Palo Verde woods.
Irwin told the newest York Times in January that the particulars of this Marfa landscape were the best thinking behind building such a deserted area: "We used to emerge right here everyday, to the part of Texas...And I'd ask myself, 'the reason why make something right here?' Then again you realize the moment you switch off I-10 and begin operating in this way: The sky changes. It's amazing. Every single day is much like a fresh occasion. The sky is everything."
