"When museums draw large crowds and display large collections, there is a lack of personal relationship and understanding of the art.
Small scale museum architecture, in the form of single galleries or pavilions housing only a few pieces by a specific artist or simply expressing the concepts of a certain artist's work, offers and opportunity to create a more intimate relationship between the artwork and the viewer.
The design of a pavilion according to an artist's philosophy will be manifested within the construction. Therefore the detailing of the pavilion will be the point at which the occupant engages the principles of the artist's work directly. The detailing is where the intimate relationship is realized. An analysis of contemporary artists and their work informs a design that promotes a personal experience and understanding of the artist's work."
