Exploratorium Observatory San Francisco, CA
1/8"=1' scale 111" x 43" x 6"

When the Exploratorium Observatory relocated from the Palace of Fine Arts to Piers 15 & 17, the best approach (in practical, visual, tactile, and scientific terms) to thoroughly plan ahead its move was through the use of a scale model.  This was a study model made from laser cut museum board (no pun intended) with open roofs and full access to the museum spaces.  What started out as a simple all-white space and volume study evolved into an intricate color study, as well.
