This is the first international arts institution in the US devoted entirely to the performing arts and theatrical design. The site is in the heart of the museum district of San Francisco and our objective is to create an iconic piece of architecture that reflects the international focus of the institute and its stature as a world-class museum. Mikhail Baryshnikov agreed to collaborate with us as part of the design team. He has extensive technical knowledge and design skills relating to the design as well as the exhibit portrayals.

Fanny Rodwell wanted to create a museum intended for the work of her husband, Hergé, the Belgian creator of The Adventures of Tintin. Christian de Portzamparc designed it as strong architecture, space of surprises, events and colors. The route is an almost narrative sequence, prolonging the art of the « ligne claire » style and the color, in a space-tribute in the invention of Hergé and in the comic strip. Joost Swarte realized the museography inside rooms, which is not shown here.

The Louisiana State Museum and Sports Hall of Fame in historic Natchitoches, Louisiana merges two contrasting collections formerly housed in a university coliseum and a nineteenth century courthouse, elevating the visitor experience for both. Set in the oldest settlement in the Louisiana Purchase on the banks of the Cane River Lake, the design mediates the dialogue between sports and history, past and future, container and contained.

Unlike any other type of museum, a film museum connects to people’s personal lives and memories. Under the Art Direction of Tilman Thürmer, COORDINATION ASIA created a museum experience for the new Shanghai Film Museum that is driven by interaction and dialogue, and that allows visitors to be an active participant in the story of Shanghai Film.

The Wellin Museum is prominently sited on a corner lot, across the road from the Art History department and across a gracious lawn from the future Theatre and Studio Arts Building. This collection of art buildings around a reconstructed pond, designed with Reed Hilderbrand Associates, will create a new arts quad at Hamilton and help develop visual and pedestrian connections between the two sides of campus, a stated goal of the College.

The State Tretyakov Gallery is a museum that symbolizes Russian culture, conceived by its founder as an open institution accessible to the public, which “is useful for many and enjoyable for everyone.”
Following the philosophy established by P. M. Tretyakov of keeping pace with society, changing along with it and responding to its needs and demands, the State Tretyakov Gallery today is striving to become a “museum of a new type,” an interactive space where multiple communication links are established in order to unite the elements of the museum’s traditional conservatism and dynamism of development.

The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo presented a summer exhibition for children entitled GHOSTS, UNDERPANTS and STARS for which we designed a Haunted house.
The concept of this exhibition invites young visitors to consider the paradox of the rules of the museum, such as ‘Don’t Run’, ‘Don’t Touch’ or ‘Keep Quiet’ by allowing behavior normally forbidden in museums.
