The design for Museum House embodies the concept of “creative tension,” it consists of two seemingly leaning towers joined by an elegant, thin bridge, suspended 300 feet above the ground. A grand lobby will showcase art pieces for the Frye Art Museum across the street, while the two towers will reflect the Museum’s existing structure, through architectural references and materials.

Façade – Shifting Screens

Shifting screens on the building’s façade will create a pattern inspired by the placement of framed artwork in the Salon of the Frye Art Museum, allowing residents to interact with the building’s exterior animation, while sharing a new expression of the Frye’s collection with the community.
