Tierney's MAKER/THINKER Exhibition opens in the West Gallery

Professor Tierney’s MAKER/THINKER: Chicago Biennial Exhibition features parametric explorations on the future of museum design as 8 variations on a theme.  Starting with the premise that the definition of art has shifted from “artifact” to “experience,” for example, Olifar Eliason’s “Weather” exhibition at the Tate Modern, this studio posed the question, what would an experience-based museum look likeBy applying design fiction as a narrative device, this studio integrated theory, practice, and digital form-making as a means to reflect on the future of architectural production.

Much thanks and appreciation goes to our design reviewers for their comments and suggestions: Studio Gang, Carol Ross Barney, Perkins & Will, Jeff Poss, FAIA, SOM Research Group, Smith + Gill Architects, and Stewart Hicks, Design w/Co.
