IDVA GALLERY is a conceptual project designed to host Virtual Art Exhibitions and Interactive Design Installations. The gallery is programmed to have flexible space usage utilizing operable wall panels and ceiling grids to fit to diverse spatial formations and conditions. The project site is located in Brooklyn, New York at the end of Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 3 where the museum has a great view toward the Manhattan Skyline and also has clear visibility from downtown Manhattan. The waterfront pier which has been heavily activated central areas for transportation and manufacturing in the past has significant meanings in that it symbolizes the transforming social paradigm and urban structure. The Pier 3 will be re designed to transform into an exhibition space which will showcase arts and projects related to emerging technology and interactivity which will bring the cultural significance back to the site.
The gallery is programmed to have flexible space usage utilizing operable wall panels and ceiling grids to adapt to diverse spatial formations and activities. Each wall panel and ceiling grid has diverse formations pre programmed into the system which can be flexible and interactive during the exhibition hours. Open Plans will be provided for Virtual Exhibitions where viewers can utilize headset VR monitors with motion & position tracking devices to view the digital exhibits while walking around into the space.
For the given project, we have assigned each unit with one pre-animated single formation which can be activated while the viewer enters and stays within the preset trigger zone. Due to the size of the data for this virtual model, we tried to limit the formations to one per unit, however there are future potentials to add more diverse pre-animated spatial scenarios to each wall panel. This can be rearranged to fit the given conditions for the exhibition.
