Museum for Contemporary Art + AIA Offices

Under the direction of Danny Nowak I worked on a museum to go across the street from the Klyde Warren Park in Dallas. The project's main goal was to create a platform for viewing. I wanted to relate the site back to the park since the entrance into it was across the corner of my site. I ended up 'framing' the entrances. Throughout the site I have frames that express the grid that I used for the structure of the site. Within the frames is the structures themselves. There is an art museum , auditorium for 200 people, bookstore, AIA offices for Dallas AIA, cafe with outdoor seating in the courtyard.
