This museum's mission is to showcase the chain of textile production and manufacturing in the various Philadelphia neighborhoods over the course of history.
The architecture of this museum is intended to express each neighborhood's individual contributions to the local textile manufacturing industry through interconnected galleries and communal areas.
The lighting and material selections have been chosen to create functional and high quality spaces. Lighting is an extremely important aspect in the design of a museum, as the items being displayed are often light sensitiive. In my design lighting is used to differentiate spaces and create glowing galleries with an overall soft, indirect quality of light.
