DIA Art Museum

The museum’s site, located in Red Hook, Brooklyn, provides visual connections between site and city that rival the Brooklyn Height’s Promenade’s. The mapping of directionality and visual forces helped create a tectonic that defines the musuem’s form and orientation towards the city. The push and pull of visual forces create a unification of city, site, form and program through the contradictory nature of these opposing forces. The primary views provided by the site act as a backdrop for the art collection, also further establishing a relationship between museum, site and city.
