The building inflects to the foot traffic entering building. The inflection occurs to â€œsoftenâ€? the entrance into the museum.
ARTICULATION OF SPACES
Within the museum, the articulation between transitional spaces and viewing spaces were highlighted by the size and shape of the space. Thus giving the user cues to the activities for that particular space.
This project required some consideration be paid to the urban development to the rear of the building. In order to articulate between the garden of the museum and the public space beyond the design began to enclose the area intended for garden space.
