Chicago's Lakeview Collections Museum


Chicago, Illinois

Academic Year

Spring semester of 2019


Catherine Wetzel


Design a building to house temporary exhibitions of everyday objects that are collected and curated in ways that reveal how artifacts define humanity’s interaction with the world.


Visiting the art museum is an experience of individual mindfulness with movement constrained through narrow corridors. Protruding spaces that hold collections are to be experienced each with their own unique delegated destination. The isolation of each extruded collection gives each collection its standalone importance. The circulation is emphasized with snaking corridors and stairs that embody a highly-orchestrated experience by the museum visitors.
