纽约州阿尔弗雷德市在19世纪是一个设计与生产建筑用赤陶土、陶瓷和玻璃的重要地区。用在纽约乃至全美国建筑上的许多工业时代的赤陶土产品都是在阿尔弗雷德生产的。最近,Ikon.5建筑师事务所为阿尔弗雷德大学纽约州立陶瓷学院设计建造了McGee艺术展馆。

McGee艺术展馆是纽约州立陶瓷学院艺术与设计系的一个扩建结构。展馆作为展示艺术与光线的大型陶瓷容器,被设置在校园内主人行路旁的两座原有校园建筑之间,再现了阿尔弗雷德的生产历史。

展馆的陶瓷立面由未上釉的赤陶土管制成,能够遮挡阳光和雨水。组成遮挡结构的赤陶土管能让人联想到艺术与设计系的同学们创造的陶瓷容器与艺术品。未上釉的白色颜料与学生完工前的艺术作品很相似。而且,立面交错的模式特别像环绕着艺术工作室的摆放未完成陶瓷制品的架子。

展馆在玻璃墙之上向外悬挑,作为一件陶瓷艺术品生动地吸引着校园内的人们,让他们可以看到展览厅的内部,从而公开展示学生作品。展览空间非常灵活且足够大,可以展示大型的当代艺术品。而且,在夹层走廊上可以俯瞰两层的展览大厅,鸟瞰三维的艺术品。此外,夹层还连接着沉浸式画廊,这是一个黑色的盒式空间,其中展示的是视频与音频形式的艺术作品。最后,艺术工作室、扩展的媒体工作室、艺术史教室和支持空间都位于展览大厅的下方。

McGee艺术展馆的设计旨在通过控制画廊内的自然采光、TPO屋面、低耗水装置、高效供暖通风与空调系统(包括在工作室和展览空间中采用裸露混凝土楼板辐射式供暖),获得美国绿色建筑委员会LEED银奖认证。

During the nineteenth century, Alfred New York was a major design and manufacturing region for architectural terra cotta, ceramic, and glass. Many industrial age terra cotta products used on buildings in New York and throughout the country were manufactured in Alfred. Recently, Ikon.5 architects completed the McGee Art Pavilion for Alfred University’s New York State College of Ceramics.

The McGee Art Pavilion is an expansion to the School of Art and Design at the New York State College of Ceramics. Designed as a large ceramic container for holding art and light, the pavilion is set on a plaza between two existing campus buildings on the main pedestrian road on the campus, creating a realization of the manufacturing history of Alfred.

Its ceramic façade, made of un-glazed terra cotta tubes, is a solar and rain screen. The tubes that make up the screen are suggestive of the ceramic vessels and art objects created inside the School of Art and Design. Their un-glazed flushed white pigment is similar to the nature of student art work before final finishing. Furthermore, the staggered pattern of the façade is enthused by the racks of unfinished ceramic articles that envelop the art studios.

Cantilevering over a glass wall, the pavilion vividly engages campus on-lookers as a piece of ceramic art and allows them to see inside the exhibition gallery, consequently putting student work on public display. The exhibition space is inherently flexible and large enough to display hefty contemporary art pieces. In addition, a mezzanine gallery overlooks the two story exhibition hall to give a bird’s eye perspective to the three dimensional works. Additionally, the mezzanine connects to the immersive gallery, which is a black box space for the total immersive display of video and audio art forms. Finally, art studios, expanded media studios, art history classrooms, and support spaces are located below the exhibition hall.

The McGee Pavilion is designed to achieve a USGBC certification through control of day lighting in the galleries, TPO roofing, low consumption water fixtures, and high efficiency heating ventilation and air condition systems, including radiant heating in the exposed concrete floors of the studios and exhibition space.
