Private Arts Building . New York


SO–IL

Located in a Brooklyn neighborhood, visually and spatially marked by its industrial past, a concrete mass houses the production, display, and storage of art. This arts' building is an exploration in soft form, where a cluster of shells acts to diffuse an exterior presence and shape the building's interior.








The self-supporting geometry of these shells exists in tension with programming, light, and circulation. The constant calibration of these constraints inform the contours of the building.
Apertures in the shells capture and carry natural light into a nearly edgeless interior, challenging the perception of a defined space. Across the building's exterior, edges and seams slip in and out of appearance. Throughout the building's suppleness and muted palette play with ambiguity and legibility; neither monumental nor prosaic, instead it entices.
