MARFA STARLIGHT GALLERY
Located in Marfa, Texas, the art gallery is an architectural intervention that draws inspiration from the design of the cabin. The gallery is a reimagining of the cabin’s design, transforming it into an elongated structure that is partially seeped into the artificial earth made as the plinth. The combination of natural and artificial elements creates a dynamic and visually striking space that is both practical and beautiful.
One of the most unique features of the gallery is the ramps that allow occupants to move freely through the space. The ramps provide an alternative to the traditional staircase, creating a sense of fluidity and movement that is both practical and visually stunning. As one walks through the gallery, they have the option to either continue walking or go back up to the ground level, providing a sense of freedom and choice that is rarely found in traditional art galleries.
The roof of the gallery is perhaps the most striking feature of the design. It serves as a spot for stargazing at night, accessible to all who visit the space. The combination of the natural beauty of the night sky and the architectural brilliance of the gallery creates an experience that is truly unforgettable.
The combination of the practical elements of the cabin design with the artistic and aesthetic considerations of the gallery creates a space that is both functional and beautiful. The elongated structure of the gallery creates a sense of movement and fluidity that is perfectly suited for the display of art.
