Images Description Credits

The project is a future 6,300 square foot automotive gallery and a fine art gallery on the ground floor of a 128,000 square foot high rise. The automobile itself became both an object of art and instrument for viewing art in the development of the project. As the diagram developed we began to ruminate on two fundamental works of twentieth century architecture. The Villa Savoye became a simple point of contact as we worked the cars through the diagram. Mies Van Der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavillion influenced the plasticity of the spatial envelope. As the walls slipped through to the exterior in the design process we began exploring variations in transparency. The car as an instrument for viewing presented the opportunity for signage on the oblique from afar and views straight in on the perpendicular while passing by. The ‘fin wall’ is the current rendition of this as shown in the presentation culminating in the full-scale mock ups.
