The Vanguard Museum improves social connections, heightens sensitivity and enhances ones sense of community by engaging activities provided to the public. By providing art exhibits with both physical and interactive pieces, users can construct their own experience within the space. Each experience encourages individuals to participate in an art environment, offering inclusive, adaptable, and community driven design.
My proposition is to design a sense of place that will break with the elitism of museums and invite the public to feel comfortable while being surrounded by art rather than intimidated. I want to open the doors of a place surrounded by artistic content that will facilitate freedom of expression.

Gallery Seating Prototype
The main purpose of the gallery seating is to provide comfort as well as function for multipurpose use. These modular seats provide back support and a small tabletop, which will allow the user to experience the space as they would in the comfort of their own environment.
Outdoor Theater Seats
These prototype was designed to provide modularity and flexibility on the theater steps. The Ash wood chairs can move horizontally in any direction desired by the user. Each individual chair allows freedom of choice to the audience visiting the museum.
