MUMA – Monash University of Art – IDEA 2020

MUMA – Monash University of Art

Occupying the ground floor of a 1960s building, MUMA works economically and strategically within the building’s radial geometry to achieve flexible, neutral curatorial space. A linear circulation spine absorbs the most difficult aspects of the existing structure, establishing a series of parallel walls which flank the spine to form rectilinear, column-free galleries. The spine functions as the armature behind the scenes, exposing the structure and services of the gallery. The galleries are neutral and spacious by contrast.
