Queens Museum of Art Expansion Strategy
Queens, New York 2001
The Queens Museum of Art Expansion provides an extensive infrastructure to promote various forms of public assembly. Gnuform proposed a complex within the existing envelope comprised of a layered set of structures, the spaces and surfaces of which amplify and express the dynamics inherent within large groups of people. In this way, the Museum's infrastructure will draw upon the patterns, rhythms, and formations generated through crowd behavior to create visible yet transitory structures within and around those of the built environment. Exhibition, then, becomes an activity immersed within a larger, more variegated field of intensified public gathering.
