Musée D’Orsay - Paris, France


The Musée D’Orsay is a great example of an elegant and refined exhibition space. The massive open skylights/windows provide ample natural light which showcase the art beautifully. In addition, the expansive main room allows guests to move around freely and view the sculptures and paintings without feeling cramped or congested.

California Academy of Sciences


The California Academy of Sciences shows a more creative and magical version of exhibition spaces. It is important for exhibition spaces to match the energy and vibe of what is being exhibited. The California Academy of Sciences is an interactive, family museum and the facade and interior of the building matches this idea with the roof being an accessable green space, among other features.
