Fiberglass Sanctuary A New Corvette Museum

A museum is an important type in the palette of public buildings. Most famous and iconic museums are mainly dedicated to house artworks or historical and cultural artifacts. Aside from the sheltering of the artifacts, museums often are landmarks, which contribute to the identity of a place.

The few museums dedicated to the automobile is interesting because America, also called the country on the wheels has little more than very basic renovated warehouses or former factories, with little commitment to exhibiting cars in a beautiful manner. The proposal here seeks to define a space that both honors its Corvette exhibits and hopefully provides sufficient architectural character to be accepted as an institutional landmark. / Master of Architecture
