The entire 4th year class of undergraduate students participated in a one-week charrette to design a sailboat museum along the American East coast. Our projects were all pinned up each day of the week and the 4th year studio professors would go by each project and give a 60 second critique and grade. On the final day, 3 winner were selected. My project was chosen second. This was primarily because out of the 104 students, I was the only one proposing the idea that the sail could be touched and experienced.
The museum’s gallery space is dispersed throughout a series of vertical movements which brings the user up towards the sail. This also allows one to have multiple viewpoints of a boat that would normally not be possible.
