The shed is a non-profit cultural organization for the public, which is committed to commission, develop and display original works of art in all disciplines. The Fed's blog building is an innovative 18500 square meter building designed by Diller scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell group. The structure of the building can be physically modified to support the artists' wild ideas.
The eight story building includes two floors of art space; Multifunctional Griffin Theatre; Tisch skylight, which includes a rehearsal space, a creative lab designed for local artists, and an activity space with skylight. McCourt is a landmark space that can hold large-scale performances, installation exhibitions and various activities. It is formed when the retractable shell of "the shed" is deployed from the foundation building and slides along the track to the adjacent square.
The shed has two spacious and flexible pillarless galleries, which are located on the second and fourth floors of the main building respectively. It has more than 2340 square meters of Museum level exhibition space with a ceiling height of 6 meters. The movable wall on the east side can directly connect the gallery and "the McCourt" to provide more space and seats.
"The shed" open infrastructure can provide permanent flexibility for the unknown future and be able to respond to the changing needs of scale, media, technology and artists in a timely manner“ The 37 meter high removable shell of the shed "is constructed by an exposed steel inclined frame and covered with a translucent cushion made of polyfluoroethylene (ETFE) and light-weight Teflon polymer. This material has the thermal insulation performance of insulating glass, and is only a small part of the weight of insulating glass“ The shed's polyfluoroethylene panel is the largest ever, and in some places it's nearly 21 meters long.
Museum of Tomorrow
When Renzo Piano and Richard Roger designed Pompidou, they used only half of the venue to build the Art Center, while the other half was empty as the city square of Paris. In Rio, Brazil, the tomorrow Museum designed by Calatrava also provides a 7600 square meter square in addition to a 5000 square meter exhibition space“ The square creates a more cohesive urban space and reflects the greater transformation of the community. "
Inspired by Rio culture, the museum explores the relationship between the city and the natural environment through architecture. The square surrounds the building and extends along the pier. The side of the building facing the square is 75 meters long and the side facing the sea is 45 meters long, which highlights the extension of the museum from the wharf to the bay. The permanent exhibition is located upstairs with a 10 meter high roof and panoramic view of Guanabala Bay. The total height of the building is limited to 18 meters, which protects the view from the UNESCO World Heritage Site St. Bento Abbey Bay.
The cantilevered roof and facade structure with large movable wings extends almost the entire length of the pier, emphasizing the extension to Guanabara Bay, while minimizing the width of the building. There is a reflection pool outside the building, which is used to filter the water drawn from the Bay, and then put it back from one end of the pier, giving visitors the impression that the museum is floating on the water.
The building features sustainable design and combines natural energy and light sources. The water from the bay is used to regulate the temperature inside the building, which also provides water for the reflection pool around the museum. The museum also uses photovoltaic solar panels, which can be adjusted to optimize the angle of all day sunlight and generate solar energy to provide energy for buildings.

The curved roof makes the space flowing, and also makes some specific forms of exhibitions especially brilliant here, such as team lab.By creating additional public space to bring moving traffic, it will work for any museum building.
Cape Town - 2019
Few people don't like Thomas Heatherwick. There's no style, but even the brain holes are quite elegant. Every work is different. The curly bridge, the trembling dandelion, the stairs in all directions... He is more like an artist than a designer or an architect. Every time he makes a move, he is full of aura. It can be said that Heatherwick's design talent with certain performance ability is rare. He can always solve a problem in the most unique way, such as connection, display and crowd interaction. He doesn't talk too much. His technique seems incredible to others, but he instinctively uses design to solve problems.Barn renovation is not new. Many architects have tried it, but after renovation like Heatherwick, there is really nothing that can be described as gorgeous. The visual effect of stereoscopic cutting of products from 1920s is as amazing as 3D printing. His works always make people have a kind of imagination which is very simple but envied by adults when they are reading children's poems. "I walk with a flashlight. When I'm tired, I use it as a crutch. I lean on a beam of light.".
