erick kristanto: the museum of comic and cartoon art

new york-based graduate erick kristanto has sent us images of his entry into the ‘museum of comic and cartoon art’ competition set for manhattan, new york. the design, which earned kristanto an honorable mention, was influenced by the form and properties of speech bubbles, creating spaces that are unconventional in both shape and organization.

the general volume of the building was first subdivided into storeys and programs after negotiating the appropriate area for each function. represented by bubble quotes, the individual rooms were adjusted in to modules and arranged to seemingly hover in space on top of the other. circulation is mainly driven by a central helix ramp while shortcuts are provided by short, by-passing slides in between levels. views toward the street and brooklyn bridge are established while open roof surfaces are converted into multi-functional areas.

  • Really nice… but they’ll have problems getting all four of The Beatles to show up (as seen in the visual).

  • this is brilliant

    finally – organic form that makes sense and is downright clever as well

    love the 3-D “bubble diagram” (lmao) showing the spatial organization

    if this was an honourable mention, cna’t wait to see what was actually selected
