A wall painting with chairs
- Caroline Kurze
Jensen Architects created a wall painting with chairs. This project was developed as an adaptable tool kit serving new public programming and special events at the Oakland Museum of California. Sited in the museum’s terraced-concrete entry plaza, the project creates an outdoor living room for the community with simple metal garden chairs hung from hooks like chairs in a Shaker house. Initially projecting a strong graphic impression, the composition comes into three-dimensional relief and expresses itself as an interactive participatory piece where staff and visitors can create multiple seating arrangements in response to different events and gatherings.
