Concept

Imagine walking into a cloud, amidst the fog, a hot, humid room. The weather museum envisions the building as a porous vessel, hybridizing various properties of air in creating a museum that is experienced not just visually but through sensing, touch, and smell. The sensorial qualities of a space, the phenomena, shaped by different properties of air influence our behavior and experience.

Program

Various glass types and assemblies were studied to understand permeability. Permeation happens through layers of glass, beginning with the controlled extreme rooms, which react to form phenomena. By considering external elements such as raw material and outside air, tertiary phenomena's are created in relation to its surrounding. The museum presents phenomena that are positive and negative, comfortable and uncomfortable, pushing viewers to be aware of and to meditate upon their surroundings.

Anchor

Extreme Hot & Cold Rooms spatially organized to anchor the space

Organization

Inclusion of other programs, phenomenons and their spatial relation to each other

Circulation

Public and exhibition circulation

Structure

Open frame lattrice structure to express permeability on the exterior
