    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    dino KIRATZIDIS: Program: Museum for objects, a contemporary Wunderkammer
    The precedent for the project was the Wunderkammer (a precursor to the museum), in which objects across different categories were typically exhibited in the same space.  The “Cross-Referencing Museum”, by comparison, is a museum where objects are not literally in the same space, but rather perceptually ‘in the same space’, through the manipulation of views.
    View-lines are manifested in a series of cones. Overlapping regions of the cones are voided through Boolean operations, resulting in articulated interior surfaces.



    While the spaces outside these “ocular clusters” are for individual exhibits; the spaces inside them allow for a visual cross-reference of different parts of the “collection”. This ‘cross-reference’ extends beyond the perimeter of the building (views of neighboring landmarks and public garden space are also framed).
    Beyond their curatorial cross-referencing, the ‘cluster-arms’ also organize the space around them into a series of ‘rooms’ and atriums; on the top level they become pedestals.

    sP: what or who influenced this project?

    dK: Early Preston Scott Cohen, Greg Lynn, Lewis Tsurumaki Lewis, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Jun Aoki, probably Venturi.

    sP: whose work is currently on your radar?

    dK: BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), SANAA, R&Sie(n), 26’10 South
