  • Used conceptual masses to make space diagrams
  • want a grand central staircase to promote walking. But elevator will be located right next to staircase for ADA purposes
  • restrooms easily accessed from food services/offices
  • all meeting rooms will have one side glass facade. meeting room located opp. side from offices to promote walking
  • all exhibits will have at least one wall of glass facade
  • Delineations between sections don’t necessarily indicate walls
    • definitely walls between office/rest of the floor, though. but not all opaque, some frosted glass
    • open space between exhibits, cafes, study spaces (no doors)
    • want ambient noise everywhere, but peaceful vibe
      • except for level 1, where there will be a kid’s zone. this will be the liveliest floor
