Museum of Modern Art

Student: Julia Dane

Program: Interior Design

This model for a Museum of Modern Art was inspired by Eero Saarinen’s main terminal building at Dulles International Airport in Washington D.C. The concept of this museum was to combine form, line, shape, rhythm, and balance to create a simple but dramatic design. Saarinen’s use of sweeping, curvilinear lines was translated to this design through the use of curved roofs. Wood columns accent the roofs in order to add architectural interest and bring in an element of nature.
