parametric facade PROJECT DESCRIPTION THE PROJECT WAS DESIGN IN OR DER TO HOUSE THE WORKS OF A sALVADOR DALI. iNFLUENCED BY HIS WORK ON SUBREALISM I CREATED A WALL WITH SIX INCHES THICK PANELS. THE PANELS WILL ROTATE BY THEIR CENTER IN ORDER TO CREATE CIRCULATION AS WELL TO ALLOW NATURAL LIGHT INTO THE SPACE WHEN THE GALLERY IS OPEN. THE PANELS ARE DERRIVED FROM THE MOST FAMOUS PAINTING OF THE ARTIS. THE ILLUSION I INTENDED TO CREATE WAS THAT BY LOOKING AT THE PANES ON THE SIDE ONE CAN ONLY SEE A SURFACE WITH EXTRUDING CURVES BUT WHEN SEEING FROM THE FRONT THE IMAGE

The Façade project In 1993, Storefront commissioned a collaborative building project by artist Vito Acconci and architect Steven Holl. The project replaced the existing façade with a series of wall panels that pivot vertically or horizontally, enabling the entire length of the building to open directly onto the street. Storefront’s façade is now regarded by many as a contemporary architectural landmark and is visited each year by thousands of artists, architects, and students from around the world. The façade exemplifies Storefront’s commitment to alternative architectural and artistic practices.
The place is shaped like a slice of pizza, and it’s not much bigger, but there’s nothing small about the visions on view at Storefront for Art and Architecture. Art exhibitions at Storefront, which operates on a shoestring, have been putting museums to shame for years. — The New Yorker
