Henry Moore Gallery

2011   •   3rd Year B.Arch.Sci Project

Located on a prospective site adjacent to Sherbourne Common Park, this sculpture gallery is dedicated to the work of Henry Moore. It aims to address the dual urban condition active on the site, with the park to the west and the residential block to the east. The building becomes a through-block connecting both neighourhoods while offering community amenity space at grade.

The building houses its program within stacked bars that slip off one another to create residual public and private gallery spaces. This interaction between the slipping forms creates a sense of compression, tension and motion. This configuration results in a large cantilevered projection of the building that frames the public courtyard below, while creating a public atrium above.
