EYEBEAM MUSEUM OF ART AND TECHNOLOGY

The interlaced production and the presentation programs each have distinct physical attributes: while the production spaces require an even distribution of natural light and artificial light for day/night work, the exhibition spaces require a high degree of light control and sound isolation. Effectively these requirements necessitate that the fluid spaces of exhibition and the fluid spaces of production each constitute a discrete building: one filled with light and one that can be darkened. The levels of these buildings appear to be “shuffled together” like a deck of cards, their qualities put into relief on the façade.
