The Leonardo Museumâ€™s commission for its new home is part architecture, part artistic innovation.
After years of renovations, Salt Lake Cityâ€™s Leonardo museum is poised to move into its new home in the cityâ€™s former downtown public library building. Conceived in the spirit of Leonardo da Vinci, the art, science, and technology museum hosted a design competition to create a permanent media wall that would represent its creative mission while serving the programmatic role of dividing two first-floor galleries in the new building. Last summer, the museum awarded the commission to recent Columbia GSAPP graduates Yong Ju Lee and Brian Brush, founders of the New York- and Portland, Oregon-based design and digital fabrication practice SoftRigid. Their installation, Dynamic Performance of Nature, is not only a fluid solution to the buildingâ€™s architectural needs but also a high-tech presentation of real-time environmental data from around the world.
