OSU Postal Plaza Gallery in Stillwater, Oklahoma by Elliott + Associates Architects » OSU Postal Plaza_035

What was once the postal sorting room is now the main gallery space.			The overhead catwalk and windows remain in place where postal security 			once watched the postal sorting process.  Three skylights once provided 			light for the sorting room. We chose not to reopen the skylights for fear of 			potential storm and water damage.  Instead, the skylights are shown as 			“ghosts” in their original positions.  Cable lighting spans the space and the 			lights float in the volume.  A new ceiling surface was suspended below the 		existing plaster ceiling.  The original plaster ceiling had so many holes that 		it was less expensive to cover than to repair.  The image shows an 				exhibition being installed., Image Courtesy © Scott McDonald
