Contemplation Annex

Lincoln, NE

The essence of community and art crystallizes in this project to communicate a new identity to the institution. I learned through this project-specific conditions of the museum environment, integrating nature into interiors, and the influence of form to address identity. I enhanced through this project my visualization skills in general.

The project addresses an expansion to the west of the existing building of The International Quilt Museum and Study Center. The aim was to create a form that calls for a new identity to the institution through addressing the fluidity of the cloth. The new expansion includes a new exhibition space and common area to release museum fatigue from the existing building.
