This building was designed to be a prominent billboard for the Peabody Museum as well as a gateway and information center for Yale’s Science Hill Campus. The facade is read from both interior and exterior and is responsive and adaptable to changing exhibits displayed within.
Extended structural mullions support adaptable display cases which can be designed to communicate to passersby outside, creating a constantly changing facade. These panels can also be coordinated to provide a large-scale information display on the exterior as well. Dual screen projectors allow informational films to be viewed from the interior and broadcast to the exterior simultaneously.
