INTRODUCTIONGraduating at a time of unprecedented circumstances, the Interior Architecture Class of 2020 embraces a paradigm shift to the virtual dimension. Faced with the challenge of designing an exhibition without a space, the seniors adapt a virtual site for the Senior Show. The RISD Museum Grand Gallery, the place of European grand masters, is transformed into an exhibition of the Interior Architecture seniors. The seniors’ full-scale Human Factors artifacts occupy the central space of the museum’s iconic portrait gallery, and ten classical paintings host ten new adaptive reuse projects in augmented reality. “The New Normal” investigates the potential of space-making when movement is not possible, adapts and rethinks architectural language in altered design conditions. Importantly, it is an invitation to congregate in new ways, to celebrate the culmination of our time together as a class no matter where we are.

WHAT’S IN THE SPACE
Navigate around the space. You will notice large, rotating objects in the center of the room - these are full-scale artifacts of our Human Factors projects.


You will see 10 large portals, similar to the one you entered through, showcasing works by 10 seniors. Feel free to step inside each one. A gallery tag beside the portal will let you know the artist.

Take a look at the paintings along the wall. At first glance, they appear to be classical paintings, but on closer inspection you may notice that some of them have been replaced with our renderings! 

Enjoy the space and feel free to walk around for as long as you like!
