Cloud-Like Ceiling Interacts With Museum Visitors
New York City design firms develop an engaging, suspended roof for science installations in Queens.
The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) in Queens was originally built as an exhibit pavilion for the 1964 World’s Fair. Today, it’s the home of one of New York City’s many great museums as an interactive science and technology center.
NYSCI needed a piece that would tie together their entire ‘ReGeneration’ exhibit, which is currently going on. ReGeneration is an exhibit that looks at the links between culture, urbanization, sustainability, and immigration through the lenses of art and science. So NYSCI turned to New York City’s best design firms looking for an installation that could not only serve as a physical cover for the exhibit, but also act as a piece in the exhibit as well.
