The idea behind the design was to create a space that celebrated in the arts. My focus was on movement through the building and using ramped surfaces that guided the people.
I wanted movement to seem natural and not forced, hence the reason why spaces appear to roll into each other through the use of ramps; while distinction is still achieved through narrow entries and varying ceiling heights.
I then overlayed this idea with a post-modern design, which is fitting considering the space is intended to exhbit post-modern art. The use of angled walls and varying cieling heights not only contribute to this, by assist in creating a certain atmosphere. In particluar, the use of low and high rise cielings have been used to inspire the feeling of being uplifted, while angular walls contain the human within the space.
