Elliot White is a conceptual designer who has created a concept design for the redevelopment of Queens Museum of Art. The Queen’s Museum of Art is located at the World’s Fair Site in Queens, NYC. The design consists of a visually exciting asymmetric shape that has the museum above and space for events underneath. Using lattice, the building would consist of concrete and plastic and has a very modernist feel to it. The design is supposed to mimic the 5 boroughs of New York City.
There would also be a permanent display of the 5 boroughs and the work consisted of both physical and digital modeling. I am sure this would be an interesting proposal for a museum and people would certainly like to visit a museum that is so postmodern and almost surreal.
I would say, this concept needs to be encouraged so that the redevelopment of the Queens Museum takes place in this sort of conceptual design and would be totally avant-garde. It is just a matter of time before we see these break-away designs in reality.
