This project is the culmination of two formal languages, one the rectangular subtractions of five vertical planes, and the other, curving horizontal planes that which contrast the rigidity of the first formal language. This system invites the user as they circulate up the entry ramp, greeted by pieces of the structural perforated planes within the floors above. An exterior courtyard allows a light well into the rear of the site and displaying the site’s existing mural. As the user continues through the entry sequence, they walk into the lobby from the rear courtyard. The gentle curve of the entry ramp pulls upward into a grand stair and asks the user to circulate upward through the atrium. The atrium’s sextuple height space is bright and white from the large window and skylight cut through the roof. As the user moves upward and through the building, they navigate through the language’s perforated planes, which divide the museum spaces into smaller galleries and allow for voyeuristic opportunities through the stair and the double height spaces on the classroom and gallery levels. On the administration levels, office privacy is defined by pieces of wall through visibility and framing of spaces. Movement through the perforated language is defined by hole height and width rather than conventional door dimensions.
