US studio Schaum/Shieh was tasked with the renovation of a building in Houston's museum district and the firm created a modern gallery aesthetic for an establishment that asks questions and promotes answers. The Transart Foundation for Art and Anthropology will seek to provide an accessible space for "critical intersection between art and anthropology" in terms of practices and findings.
The art facility was revamped by Schaum/Shieh, which re-cladded an existing structure and carefully constructed a building "that [could] accommodate exhibitions, performances and events." In the curation of the gallery aesthetic, Schaum/Shieh concentrated on creating something non-invasive yet something that drew attention. Hence, the firm settled on a facade that intentionally looks like "it could 'blow away in the wind.'"
