A 300-foot long site-specific spatial installation for the Barnes Foundation. The client was interested in activating the underutilized public portions of the site, which were acting as a barrier to entry for the museum. The concept-driven project proposed a transformation of the visual barrier into an occupiable space.

▼装置成为引导通达博物馆的标识，the device becomes the logo guiding the access to the museum
After exploring pedestrian barriers, the design team began experimenting with typical construction fencing materials. The material was transformed into catenary tubes formed by rolling and fastening the material lengthwise.A weaving and tiered pattern swoops down to create a ceiling plane and then rises up into the tree canopy to create both intimate and sprawling spatial experiences. Due to the porous and lightweight nature of the material, the installation is dynamic as it is affected by sunlight, wind, and visual layering.
▼装置被悬挂于树冠上创造出一个类似天花板的平面，the device is suspended from the canopy to create a ceiling-like plane
▼这些图案通过编织和分层的方式构成，these patterns are constructed by weaving and layering
▼多孔的轻质材料更易受到阳光、风的影响，porous lightweight materials are more susceptible to sunlight and wind
Beneath the mesh canopy, cafe seating, picnic areas, lounge areas and a bocce court were added to further activate the space.
▼网状天篷下的空间成为人们的咖啡茶座、野餐区，beneath the mesh canopy, there are cafe seating, picnic areas
▼属于孩子们的沙地，sandy land belonging to children
▼其中安放了各种活动设施，various activities on the site
