The entry sequence was carefully designed to prepare the visitor for an artistic and intellectual experience. The original building was designed in by renowned Northwest architect Paul Thiry and was built in the 1950s. We revealed Thiry’s work, and inspiration from the original design guided us through the design process. The design emphasis is to use daylight to guide the visitors through the building and use carefully controlled daylight to light the galleries. The use of clerestories provides daylight in the galleries while an occulous in the Rotunda aligns the visitor with the organization of the museum. Views to the courtyard provide relief to the visitor and lessens museum fatigue.
