Morphosis Architects' Centre Pompidou Exhibit

2006, July

– Museum Exhibit Construction, Connected Isolation, Spectator Experience

Size: 2,808 gross sq ft

Program: Exhibition installation for display of 24 architectural projects in custom-designed aluminum and glass structure.

As instillation crew member, worked with a select team of U.S. architecture students to build an aluminum frame and glass bay structure in Paris, France for Centre Pompidou exhibit.

The exhibit components, presented under a continuous folding surface that mediates the spectator’s experience, allowing each work to be appreciated in connective isolation. Its surface reflects the viewer and the context of the Pompidou, overlaying both reflections onto the work exhibited below. The viewer thus sees himself or herself in relation to the work and sees the exhibit in relation to its context, the exposed ductwork and infrastructure of the Pompidou’s ceiling.
