Perhaps the time has come for MOCA to seek a new home, to relieve it of the decidedly 80's structure it currently inhabits. Or maybe the only thing that matters is the integrity of the collection itself, and as long as the building shelters from the environment, nothing needs to be changed.

In any case, the studio briefing called for something new, derived using component driven architecture in an entirely digital setting. An individual exploration of parametric production - including the concepts of scripting, scaling, and replication - resulted in the creation of a single performative "box".

Multiple tectonic strategies were then combined, with the hopes of producing a new, additive component that would respond to concerns about spatial qualities, light, function, and circulation.

Being a digital studio, 3D models and prints played an integral role in design and representation of the museum concept.
