The objective was to define the basic massing and its formal intentions that are directly related to the building event and its context.
Developing a project by iterating, iterating, refining, and layering. Identifying forces through processes of coherence. The outcomes of the museum building were perceived in order depending on the starting state and basic forms and assets and constraints are taken into consideration as project priorities. Steps were implemented, ranging from environmental to socio-cultural decisions, identifying program qualities and ordering principles considering the flow of forms, communication, and morphology, including containment, edge, plane, presence, and enclosure.
