PROJECT CASE HISTORIES
museum and exhibition design
Two long and slightly tapering halls, with windows overlooking
the V&A's garden courtyard, were united with a 4m-high arch opening
matching existing archways at the extreme ends. This created a processional
'nave', along which showcases would form 'side chapels'. Stained glass
is displayed on screens against the daylight. On the non-window side a
full-length false wall acts as a gigantic light-box at high level, allowing
the lighting inside to be evenly distributed and exhibits able to be changed.
The cases have a pale blue background colour that reflects light onto
the silver objects and shows off their details as well as their silhouettes.
