How to create an immersive story through Art and Architecture?
The Menil Collection is expanding and will require a new series of galleries to accommodate their drawing collection. An undeveloped site located at the corner of Colquitt and Loretto street. Currently supports the parking area and grass lawn for three sculptures by Tony smith. The board of Art and Architecture play an important role in complementing and balancing one another. When entering a drawing gallery. The way the paintings and drawings are protected like precious gems in a glass casing is the memorizing aspect. The drawing gallery becomes a sacred house for all the artwork to be sheltered in and displayed for all to see. Certain areas of the gallery are more closed off or darker. Which means that the piece of artwork is needing the most protection and care. Also, by using transparent translucent and opaque materials the light intensity is defined in each space.
