Forms In Context-Hybrid Museum

  • How to “section off” the space to house different pieces of info without creating a lot of division in the space
  • An issue with doing greenhouse gas emissions and climate change is that CO2 is not necessarily considered a pollutant since it is something we naturally breathe out and plants absorb. The anthropomorphic element lies in the CO2 that we produced with fossil fuel emissions etc. If this is something I want to consider, it may turn out that I should re-define the museum space to discuss “air quality” or something else other than “pollutants.”
  • I also found that doing additional research will be key into fully understanding this topic and creating accurate interactions. I am a little unsure on how “different” our approach has to be when it comes to

The Artechouse Museum Renewal 2121 Exhibit
  • To what extent does the exhibit have to see the concept in a nuanced way? Is it the interactions that will do this?
  • How will I refine this to incorporate the element of light a bit more?
  • It may also be good to focus on Pittsburgh as a way to provide context or ground the project.
  • Consider the space a bit more with wall usage and what wants to be in the space since everything might not be able to fit.
  • Look at Eames Mathematic exhibit as an example of trying to redefine a set idea.
  • Think about how the visitor turns and moves within the space.
  • Figure out the flow of information, dose it go through the what, why, how or maybe has an alternative process
  • Consider space → maybe visit Miller institute again to gauge the space a bit more

  • move the wall over to the right a bit more to create more space
  • Make the door to the right of the entrance a sliding door so you don’t have to account for the opening radius
  • To make the past present future section incorporate the interactions in a more cohesive way for each section, cut off right wall a bit.
  • No need to focus on the informational aspects → focus on the interactions and space layout
Left is what I had before I came up with the right diagram
Visitors view when entering the exhibit
  • Is flow of the museum seamless or does it seem disconnected? Does the break up of past, present, future make sense with the issue?
  • Is there a way to move away from only using pressure sensors?
  • How will light be a guiding force in the interactions and space?
