BRAINSTORM Bubble Diagram Preliminary Sketched Floor Plan
CONCEPT & IMPLENTATION CONCEPTIMPLEMENTATION Create a pathway making the person feel progressively smaller; upon entering the exhibit room, they feel “surrounded” Gradually lower the ceiling, narrow the hallway, and dim the lighting Prepare the person to view Lavender Mist before entering the exhibit room Use light and shadow to replicate Pollock’s painting on the walls and floor in the pathway Make people feel “surrounded” when they view Lavender Mist Create a circular space with the architecture and use light as a visual to emphasize the curvature View Lavender Mist how Jackson Pollock painted it Use natural lighting from skylights giving a full spectrum of light around the painting
DESIGN: Pathway Pathway photo demonstrating the lowered ceiling, narrowing hallway, and dim lighting Night Day
DESIGN: Pathway in Motion Video With the use light and shadow replicating Pollock’s painting on the walls and floor in the pathway, it prepares people before entering the exhibit room
DESIGN: Architecture Create a circular space with the architecture and use light as a visual to emphasize the curvature
DESIGN: Natural Lighting Natural lighting from skylights give a full spectrum of light around the painting
