Protruded Cuboids : Buenos Aires New Contemporary Museum
A linear cuboid is made out of 6 flat surfaces; north, south, east, west, up and bottom. Let’s imagine it opens up 3 sides, so that only bottom, south and west side surfaces remain. The space created with the half cuboid has a floor and views are controlled to see only 2 sides. The half cuboid became L shape wall with floor thickening the surfaces to appropriate dimension.
The L shape wall with floor offers the potential to generate spaces suitable for Gallery and External terrace space. The L shape wall can be used as an exhibition wall and if the height of the wall becomes lower, it could be used as a back of external seating.
Furthermore when the L shape wall with floor is stacked on top or side of each other with slight staggering, it create certain number of different cladding types in relation to spatial arrangement. The cladding types have been used appropriately for the purpose of the spaces in Museum. The building consists of series of the stacked L shape wall and floor provides interesting and functional interior as well as exterior.
