CRITIC - Fred Biehle
The Herman Melville Museum is a multifaceted project that was designed using Melville's "Moby Dick" as a source of inspiration.
The museum is broken up into a Library, Chapel. and Walkway.
The Library acts as the Museum's main attraction. It is subdivided into three spaces: The Information Center, The Archive, and The Stacks.
The Chapel is a space for self reflection in a quiet, nondenominational space.
The Walkway is a two-level bifurcating strand that weaves throughout and stiches everything together.
