For this special project, students in Professor Margaret Kirk’s third-year Architectural Design class were challenged to create a proposal for the Museum of Science Fiction. The students started by examining a work of science fiction (film) and designed a character based on what they analyzed. In the character design, the students considered the spatial and material systems and connections of body and skin to create a costume. They are translating those ideas into a museum design, addressing larger social, cultural and organizational implications.

During this timeframe, Professor Kirk and the students will be in the gallery space to discuss the project and their designs.
