The emphasis of this image is transparency. The primary vertical circulation for the gallery section of the building is an "L" shaped stair that curves along the facade. It hugs a suspended guillotine-like ccurved concrete panel on the inside and is enclosed by a leaning, curved, glass and steel cage. Part of the idea was to make the stair like a fire-escape, and also to make visitors in the museum connect artwork with PEOPLE in the street. This design problem issued was a musem of "American Folk Art", to be located at the currently vacant, 40' wide lot near the MOMA in NY City, on W53rd St between 5th Ave and Ave of the Americas. (Note: The actual Folk Art Museum is being designed by Kohn Pederson Fox, NY) As part of my investigation I modelled an idea in FormZ and rendered it Infini-D on a PowerMac8100. This image is a rendering of the street facade of the first 5 stories of the building photo-montaged into a photo of the context, using Photoshop.
