Typically museums are horizontal, and they make use of the vast spaces around them to lead up to the museum, forcing the visitors to walk longer and prepare themselves for the art experiences. Having picked up from this tradition we now imply the concept to a vertical museum, hence - ‘top heavy’. Museums tend to have their gallery spaces as more private, intimate spaces with a very generic form.
In our museum we have the regular generic shape which is occupied by the private programs and then we have introduced a more irregular form in the front part, that houses the public spaces.
The public space is situated between the gallery space and irregular space. Program such as the learning center is placed, to enjoy framing art pieces or projections towards the street. The intention of this being, of not only attracting people to the museum but also, - ‘take the museum out to the street." The architecture is a large art showcase itself.
