Program Blocks: Exhibits are placed in a matrix that allows the users to curate and relate ideas.
Key intersections work like the brain’s synapses: moveable translucent partitions can reconfigure the museum’s experience and circulation. The panels themselves become project screens.
Both in plan and section, the strategic overlap and lifting of volumes allows for both direct and diagonal relationships and views. Wasteful corridor space is eliminated allowing the visitor to creatively assemble their own experience.
The tall and abstract travelling exhibit space allows for maximum flexibility while linking visually to adjacent spaces and the landscape beyond.
The aggregation of volumes provides shaded outdoor spaces allows for future expansion while keeping the core idea of the museum intact.
The museum links with porous views to the existing park and provides areas of shade and invites passerbys with areas of shade and rest.
A perforated double skin shades the building and creates a convective air current between the inner and outer layers saving 23% in cooling costs.
