Into The Lost Photographs
Street photographer Garry Winogrand left behind 75,000 undeveloped negatives of LA when he died. This photography museum develops and exhibits Winogrand’s lost photographs and architecturally immerses the user into their lost photographic conditions. The proposal’s circulation descent hugs the vertical projection of these developed 35mm negatives through the building’s core. At all scales, from massing to detail, the design strategy is persuaded by the various elements of his idiosyncratic and controversial shooting style. These elements extend to ideas of loss. If these photographs don’t exist, then the building shouldn’t either. The 1:1 proposal emerges from the 1:50 proposal model, resulting in emerging states of existence.
