Shaker’s Regimen

The concept of the museum arrive from the three performance of the shaker Commode, heat stack, obscurity and multiple flow. The design of the museum assisted the exhibition of shaker culture at varying scales: artifacts, family, village, and the society. The tower act as core and it is a unusual space in the museum, where there is a indoor garden at the ground level. Being inside the tower, a person will feel holy because of the darkness and the little light comes from the top and from the opening in the facade. The tower also creates a heat stack effect. The façade of the museum is perforated metal and it creates obscurity. The size of the holes depends on the side of the museum. Southern side has smaller holes then northern side. The openings allow day light but prevents direct sunlight into the museum. The inverted pyramid shape also help shading the building.
