Solos: SmartWrap

August 5, 2003 – October 10, 2003

Museum: Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum

Location: Arthur Ross Terrace and Garden

The museum introduces a new series that will feature international and contemporary works in the fields of design and architecture. Each installation will explore a single work or theme and will examine its development, creative process, and innovative qualities. The first in this series, SmartWrap is a 16-foot-square by 24-foot-high walk-in pavilion designed by the Philadelphia architecture firm Kieran Timberlake Associates. Visitors will be able to walk through the structure that is sheathed in SmartWrap, a single, thin membrane, and manipulate the functions -- emerging technologies in heating, lighting, and solar energy -- embedded in the SmartWrap.
