Boston Art Museum

Boston Art Museum – School Project


This architecture school project was to design something for an odd, triangular island across from South Station in Boston. As with all of her school projects, Mindy developed an idea that was half building and half landscape; in this case, a museum covered with a multi-level garden. The public park atop a private museum included a confluence of paths, and presented a place of contemplation at a busy urban intersection. Mindy also developed a system of fixed and movable walls for the interior gallery spaces.  In this work, one can see the seeds of many of Mindy’s professional projects and social intentions; verdant nature intermingled with hardscape; a design for efficient energy use; flexible, modular partition systems; the use of private rooftops for public green space; and a high regard for culture and art.
