PROJECTiONE was commissioned to complete two projects for the Evansville Museum of Arts History and Science as part of an expansion project that included a new entrance pavilion. Cladding for the Immersive Theater was designed to exist as a natural, organic component encased in a clean white modern box. By using six species of wood veneer, a pixelated gradient is created that moves up through the dome from dark to light. This is conceptually intended to mimic the natural aging characteristics of materials that are exposed to the elements. In this way, the object seems as if it had always been in this place – an artifact that has been preserved by the surrounding building.
