With constantly updated architectural design conception, museum space design has entered a new phase of human-centred, taking people’s perception and experience as the fundamental starting point, to guarantee people’s comfort and pleasure during the visit. The transitional space plays an important role in the transforms of spatial sequence, and connected to all the functional spaces, is the key that influence visitors’ experience. The transitional space plays an important role in the transforms of spatial sequence, and connected to all the functional spaces, is the key that influence visitors’ experience. People can walk through or stay in transitional spaces; the situations in it connect all the developments of space plot. Transitional space is the prelude and background, and also continuity and transition of functional spaces, in which people get a good physical and psychological transition, and a complete and coherent visit.
To bring attention to the importance of transitional space in museum architecture, and to provide a useful reference for future museum design, to create a more rational and humane transitional space and better reflect the value of architecture.
To identify various parameters defining transitional space and elements used to enhance them.
To analyze how these elements have been utilized in various cases of museums through comparative analysis method
The research had two courses: Literature Study and Case Study. Through literature study, definitions and types of transition spaces and museums were identified. Certain parameters were quoted that made and enhanced such spaces in a building.
Through case studies, these parameters were analyzed
The study broadly focuses on architectural attributes of transition spaces in museum architecture. The relation between space and museum concept influence each other and meaning is formed in their relationship. With case studies to support the study, the analysis shows how much in- between spatial layouts contribute to better perception of spaces, especially in museums.
The research was carried out within a specific period and limited resources. The subjects covered in this study are very broad and can cover many areas. For the timely completion of study, only certain aspects of the topic have been focused. The parameters identified are general and maybe subjected to change with respect to change in cases taken. The study done and conclusions drawn are purely contextual and has its own limitations.
CHAPTER 2: MUSEUMS
A museum is a building, place or institution devoted to objects having scientific, historical or artistic value. Its core function includes ‘the presentation of public exhibits for the public good’. The word Museum is derived from the
