5 MUSEUMS, 1 BUILDING

An old railway building is repurposed to serve as a museum in the old town Sacramento.

The primary focus of this project was to remodel Sacramento’s Valley Station into a Sacramento Museum, by incorporating five different museums together in a innovative way. Each gallery space and exhibit type will be redesigned, and will have a list of objects on display. Other functionalities will need to be considered as well, including determining the needs of and design for the non display areas of the museum. A museums primary focus is to bring interest and recognition to certain people or things, and my design approach will include ways of keeping the user engaged and curious in a enjoyable learning environ- ment. The customers attending will range from children to adults, and certain exhibits will be geared towards those demographics. In the design, I hope to create a grid or central open floor plan, with museums running along the sides of the walls, and in the center.
