Notash, The project is a strong adaptation of an existing (and conventional) space. In terms of a program, it is challenging associating mall culture with art exhibition (at least in North America!) but you make a good argument about the need to provide something other than shops at this location. From a space planning perspective, the cornet steel dividers are quite inflexible, and would not allow for much adaptation to rotating exhibits. They seem somewhat over-designed, though the overall image of columns, floors, and walls remain harmonious. Though I appreciate the layering effect of the walls, this adds to their inflexibility and ease of programming. Maybe one move too many.
Photo No 7 (Temporary exhibition area): Though I am happy to see this as an early stage design, I do think that (especially for exhibition spaces) it is important to integrate lighting and mechanical strategies from the early stages, so as not to present a false image. Could the lighting strategy have been part of the ceiling (and not another track system?) How would fresh air supply be seamlessly integrated into the sculptural ceiling?
Photo No 9 (Presentation Cover): In general, this is a well-conceived and balanced space. In some ways, it would have been an interesting proposal for how to treat all public spaces in the mall, as opposed to an art gallery. It implies movement and fluidity. Arguably this competes with the artwork on display.
Photo No 10 (The floor plan): The floor plan invites the user to wander through the space, though with multiple entrances issues of security (of valuable artwork) is unclear with multiple entrances. This may have been the found condition of the space, but it is unclear how this issue is addressed.
