MUSEUM OF CHINESE IN AMERICA, Permanent Exhibition, New York City, NY

Work done as a Project Manager/Designer for Matter Architectural Practice, in collaboration with Maya Lin.

The permanent exhibit for the Museum of Chinese in America opened in 2008.  The design is based on a traditional Chinese house with a courtyard core dedicated to the portraits of Chinese immigrants to the US from the early 1800s until today.  The exhibit chronicles their unique stories and the beauty found in a difficult but triumphant immigrant culture.
