We were assigned to design the interior space of a volume that was 40’ long x 18’ wide and 20’ high. The sole purpose of this interior volume was to exhibit a rare contemporary cultural artifact of our choosing. Visitors needed to be able to enter, view and depart from this volume. Our responsibility was to create a design experience ritual that invited visitors to come inside, encouraged them to move toward and view the artifact, and then depart. Taking advantage of the qualities of natural light to help shape the experience and perception of the visitors passing through the space was essential. Our design tools included the walls, ceiling and floor planes of the volume and natural light potential.
