Michel Laflamme Architect
• two distinct shows on display at all times
• maze-like quality
25' x 80' rectangular space with two large light wells
The overall composition is to be generated through an exercise in fluidity with accent on strong spatial experience and art work.
The two individual shows are distributed front and back:
• at the front, a classical composition reinforces the presence of the first light well
• at the back, a freeform composition addresses a dynamic juxtaposition between the second light well, the stair well, and the staff desk.
The Forced Perspective:
A dark floor and ceiling appear to bleed up and down the walls in contrast with the soft white exhibit surface, thus reinforcing the focus on the artists' work.
