#sectionperspective , #plan , and #rendering by Yining He and Yanxi Fu @yanxi_fu completed during the The Museum Stripped Bare By (or To?) Its Galleries Studio led by Eric Bunge @eric.bunge and Mimi Hoang @mimi_hoang @narchitects_pllc.
As with most cultural and technological shifts, the transformation of the museum as a type has been gradual enough to go largely unnoticed, or at least incrementally accepted, by the public. Meanwhile, the development of new art forms either outpaces or is sometimes constrained by the spatial and technical capacities of the spaces in which they are displayed or enacted to the public. Has the museum as a building type grown too complex? Or should we, as architects, embrace this increasing complexity? This studio proposes both a brief and counter-brief — envision a hypothetical art museum without galleries or envision a hypothetical art museum with only galleries. The intention is to design a new medium sized museum that challenges traditional spatial and organizational qualities of galleries and support spaces in a search for a rigorous and inventive architecture.
