Light Museum

As an annex for the Carnegie Museum which focuses on light, natural light defines spatial experiences and provides four specific gallery conditions in this project: 1) an indirectly day-lit gallery, 2) a no daylight gallery, 3) an extensively day-lit gallery, and 4) a fully day-lit/outdoor gallery. The museum program also includes a study center, curatorial offices, and support spaces.

The design draws upon my experiences in canyons near my home in Colorado. These experiences are reinterpreted to define the form and ways in which light enters the museum. Light is channeled into circulation spaces through a central core- acting much like a canyon. Light an views are appropriated to the galleries though openings cut from the internal rectolinear spaces out though the canyon-like form. The double skin system becomes a daylight filter as it modulates indirect light into the gallery spaces.
