university of westminster
instructors: andrew yau and andrei martin
the connective relationships between the buildings functions have been developed through research focused on the movement of people between museum spaces. the experiential affect is a product of the transition between the prismic geometry of the surrounding urban context, to which the building’s exterior skin is aligned, and the specific performative nature of the interconnected, tangentially continuous circulatory network.
