DESIGN FOR FLUIDITY AND AMPLITUDE
Puerto Rico’s Art Museum’s ActivArte serves as a visual arts teaching laboratory that promotes the active participation of its users through historic, social and aesthetic perspectives.
ActivArte’s new design, led by Jorge Rigau, FAIA Architects, reconceptualized the space through a sculptoric treatment of its floors and walls to highlight different content stations. Graphic design revealed and contrasted the relationships between art, science, nature, architecture and industrial design. Interactive elements and site specific artworks complemented the design strategies.
