Located at the northern edge of Michigan State University's campus, this unique building is influenced by a set of movement paths that traverse and border the site. Presenting itself as a sharp, directed body, comprising directional pleats which reflect the topographic and circulatory characteristics of its surrounding landscape. With an outer skin that that gives the building an ever-changing appearance on passing, creating great curiosity yet never quite revealing its content. This open character underlines the museum's function as a cultural hub for the community.
