Elective Studio: Hip Hop Museum

Elective Studio

My approach to this building design are based on the experience of an outsider who did not grow up in the US or within the culture of hip-hop. The programs of the museum lead an action of inquiry. The interior form of the building shows the struggles that I had from trying to understand hip-hop and it became the void space that carries energy out of the ceiling. Throughout the semester I’ve examined art forms associated with hip-hop such as graffiti and break-dancing, Mc-ing, and DJ-ing.
