mini museum (two week charette)
state college, pa

Rather than removing trees to design and construct a mini museum, the building is built around the existing forest, utilizing natural resources for structural elements. The structural tree, also acting as the gallery centerpiece, acts as a large column, supporting the mezzanine and cafe.

There is an existing home on the site. The museum is located to the north-east of the home to prevent blocking sight-lines to the mountains and to the roads.The museum is conveniently located near the existing drive to allow exhibition deliveries and to service the cafe.
