Outpost Office Install Color Block No. 2 at the Wexner
Outpost Office (Assistant Professors of Architecture Ashley Bigham and Erik Herrmann) have installed Color Block No. 2, the second phase of their year-long intervention at the Wexner Center for the Arts.
This large-scale, modular furniture activates various in-between spaces both inside and outside the Wexner Center. People are encouraged to interact with the pieces, rather than simply viewing them, changing the dynamic usually experienced in a gallery or museum. The installation challenges both conceptual and physical institutional boundaries. Museum architecture often imposes divisions between gallery spaces and public areas. This division is blurred in the Wexner Center’s building. Exhibition spaces and architectural features converge, making the Wexner Center a milestone in postmodern architecture. New spaces created by Color Block No. 2 extend these characteristics. These spaces for collaboration, socializing, and informal learning draw visitors’ attention from the building’s exterior to its interior.
