The first thing that met my eye when I entered the foyer of the new Textile Fashion Center was the sculpture Cloned Frogs on Gala Dress by William Sweetlove.
Those of you who have been following my blog ever since spring 2010 (when the blog was still called The Island of the Voices), will probably remember it… That sculpture was somewhat of a soap opera in our local media (as well as on my blog) for a while back then!

I’m not sure if I have posted any more updates on it after that, but between then and now, the sculpture has had its home a/ inside the temporary library (while the main one was being renovated), b/ in the foyer of the town’s Cultural Center (library, art museum and theatre), and c/ (until now) in the machine hall of the Textile Museum.
Enough about that! Let’s go on to the reception desk:
▲I liked this paved ‘street’, creating a connection between outdoors and indoors. There’s also a small stage for various kinds of performances.▼
▲ An exhibition showing the works of graduating students from the Textile College.
▲ The Textile Museum will be moving into these premises too (next year).
▲ Back entrance looking out over the wooden decks I showed more of in my previous post.
▲Going up in the lift/elevator.
▼Looking down from a window on the top floor.
