If I were to go in the direction of creating an exhibition space for art, I would want a neutral building designed to showcase the art inside. I really like the soft and elegant feeling of the Pompidou Center, and it has a ton of natural light because of the materials that were used to create the walls and ceiling of the building. It also reminds me of Kengo Kuma’s “Même Meadow House.” The building materials/wall design could be great if I were to build my exhibition space somewhere that has an intense winter.
I also really want to incorporate a green element into my design... I was specifically thinking about a green roof but it could also be cool to have plants inside of the building itself.
- solar photovoltaics
- waste-water recycling
- water collection
- maybe not... very expensive
- sustainable and local materials
- vernacular architecture
- passive heating system
- also like NOLS building
One of the first buildings that got me interested in architecture! LEED platinum certified
Brainstorm for contents of exhibition space
- renewable energy technology
- not sure if this is feasible, more based on my personal interest
- ecosystems of the united states
- kind of like a natural history museum?
- could be more of a botanical garden, each exhibition space is like a greenhouse that exhibits plant life from different parts of the US
- architecture museum?
- could be interesting to exhibit models and drawings
- is the space going to have a permanent exhibit, or will there be rotating exhibits? or a mixture of both?
