I'm no expert but, ...
I think the old 'glass pyramid in the museum courtyard trick' has been done already.
Petty criticisms aside, the Palace of the Legion of Honor is a delight to visit.

Impressive building and a great photo.

Nice capture of repetition. Have the UFOs landed in BC?

Wow - what a shot, Wayne!

Yeah, I think you got the capitals right. (Doric, Ionic, Corinthian, in order of increasing complexity, isn't it?) Got your reference but that other museum between the river and Rue Rivoli is a bit more grand.

Have a wonderful stay in San Francisco! I haven't been there yet, and hope to visit someday.

Old sailing ships had triangular glass set into to the upper deck to bring light to the lower decks. Not exactly a new idea.

Apparently size doesn't matter in museum circles.
