Thesis: Design for Museum of Air & Space As a continuation of the architectonics of inversion, the major display in the museum is achieved through a multi-media presentation along the rear curved wall panels. On the first suspended floor and opposite the catwalk are the conventional display objects. There is a flip, then, from foreground and background display of information to the observer from one floor to the next. The extrusion in plan and section is broken at the same area- where entry and scaled-down airplane models occur. The construction of the building utilizes the same technological approach to that of present day aircraft: lightweight honeycomb-core aluminum panels, castellated steel, shop fabrication/field assembly, and neoprene zipper-type gasketing.
