Design Brief

The site for MakeSeries2 is the North Gallery in the Architecture Annex.  The boundaries of the gallery are outlined to be a rectangle defined as the 3 existing walls with the southern boundary to be 20 feet from the north wall.  Students are asked to create an installation that will A) Define and separate the gallery from the work spaces, and B) give an additional function to the space.  This additional function is left for each submitting team to conceptualize.
