Yagul Art Museum Project

Studio photographs, drawings and model for the Yagul Art Museum project. The site is adjacent to the ruins of Yagul in Oaxaca, Mexico. The program consists of a display area for given sculptures and a scholar’s library. The design is a series of heavy stone bases set into the ground with a much lighter steel mesh above. The mesh is supported by steel columns and covered in key areas with a weighted drop cloth. Notable themes are: following edges, the contrast of the heavy floor with the light roof, and how the floor and the roof can become walls.
