ARCH1201 - Project 3: Art Gallery, Shop, House - Concept

Narrative: With the simple clear shapes, an abstract artist is using his imagination to bring creative power to the audience and leads them to get into nature to feel where they are and what they see.

The inspiration of space was created by simple lines intersecting with each to generate sets of enclosed spaces in geometrical forms.

The private apartment for the artist does not physically connect to the art gallery but their shapes of plans are coming from the same rectangle.

The model both in real world and sketchup has doors for security actually. The reason why they were hidden in those submitted images is to show the interior more clearly.

ARCH1201 - Project 3: Art Gallery, Shop, House - Artist and Narrative

John Coburn, 1925-2006, Queensland born artist.

Coburn was predominantly an abstract artist. It is perhaps his greatest achievement to have reached large audiences with a form of abstract painting based on simple clear shapes and radiant colour. Most of Coburn's pictures have a joyous quality, and that may be why they exert such broad appeal.

At heart, Coburn was a classically minded artist, who described his style as "precise, clear and deliberate".

ARCH1201 - Project 3: Art Gallery, Shop, House - Precedent Studies

The Royal Ontario Museum, commonly known as the ROM, is located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is Canada's largest museum of world culture and natural history.[1] The ROM is the fifth largest museum in North America, containing more than six million items and over 40 galleries. It has notable collections of dinosaurs, Near Eastern and African art, East Asian art, European history, and Canadian history. It contains the world's largest collection of fossils from the Burgess Shale with more than 150,000 specimens. It has also hosted many traveling exhibits.

The museum is located at the corner of Bloor Street and Avenue Road, north of Queen's Park and on the east side of Philosopher's Walk in the University of Toronto. Established as the Museum of Natural History and Fine Arts in 1857 at the Toronto Normal School, the museum's current incarnation began in 1912 with the enactment of the Royal Ontario Museum Act by the provincial government. Operated by the University of Toronto until 1968, the museum is now an independent institution but still maintains close relations with the university, often sharing expertise and resources.
