The Museum of Science Fiction

Museum of Science Fiction. the work.group architecture
The Museum of Science Fiction is not a building that attempts to co-opt popular conceptions of the genre. It acknowledges that science fiction is not inherently of any time or place, but is, by definition, distinct from our shared culture of perception and knowledge. The Museum of Science Fiction is a building that respects this fundamental property in its mission of creating a place to immerse oneself in the history of the genre. This museum is a distillation of science fiction into real experience. From the context of the city, to the one-way mirrored glass atrium, to the introverted gallery level, the museum unfolds across sequenced thresholds of perception. It moves visitors into a reality just beside ours.
