permeability

brief: design an annex and an opening exhibition concept for the Noguchi Museum in DUMBO, NY.

concept: blurring the boundaries between the neighborhood and the annex. Layers of systematic perforations create a moiré effect along the façade, emphasized by the circulation of people both within and outside of the space. The fluctuating sense of interior and exterior makes the building appear to move in sync with pedestrians and visitors alike, and acts as a tribute to the ever-changing demographics and diversity of life in the New York boroughs.
