A Museum to Time

Theoretical Design

This project looks at the three aspects of time -- past, present and future -- and translates them into architectural experience. 
It was designed as a museum to house John Harrison's Prototype chronometers, the devices that allowed mariners to accurately map Longitude for the first time. The museum, on a larger concept, examines the very nature of Time itself.
The labyrinth represents time past, grounded in tradition and unchangeable. The middle section, located on the verge between land and the Thames, is theexperience of the present, a frozen moment in time. The future, built over the fluid surface of theriver, is an ever changing experience, effected by the choice of path.
