LIGHT MUSEUM

design intent

INSTRUCTOR | Jonathan Golli DATE | Fall07

The intent of this assignment was to design an annex for the Carnegie Museum, focusing on light. In the light museum, natural light defines spatial experiences and provides four specific gallery conditions. These four galleries are the indirectly daylit gallery, the no daylight gallery, the extensively daylit gallery, and an outdoor gallery. The museum program also includes a study center, curitorial offices, and support spaces. In my design for this museum, I drew upon my spatial experiences from canyons near my home in Colorado. I used these spatial experiences to define the form and the way in which light enters into the museum. Light is chanelled into the circulation spaces through a central core, which acts much like a canyon. Light and views are appropriated to the galleries through openings cut from the internal rectolinear spaces out through the angular, canyonlike, outer form. The latest design exploration was a system for allowing light to filter between the outer form and the interior walls. The double skin system, therefore, becomes a way to modulate indirect light in the gallery spaces.

modeling technique

INSTRUCTOR | Jonathan Golli DATE | Fall07

Both digital and physical models of the light museum were developed concurrently. Towards the end of the design process, the two modes of modeling became correlated through the use of a specific modeling technique: The building’s form was first fleshed out in a digital model, using Rhinoceros 3-D software. Templates generated from the digital model were then used for the construction of the outer skin for the physical model. The templates were printed to scale and indicated all lines for cuts and scores necessary to an accurate physical model out of chipboard.
