Philadelphia, PA
M. Arch Studio I // Critic: Miroslava Brooks
Acting as the bridge between worlds, something that is “both and” not “either or,” an existing courtyard will be transformed into a dynamic public space that exists both to provide natural respite from the built environment and to house museum-related programmatic functions. Passages within this courtyard will carry both light and people to the private archive space buried below, and to the courtyard’s public hanging enclosure, suspended above. By injecting a degree of porosity into a once impermeable space, what was once hidden can now be seen, what was once inaccessible can now be reached.
