Hirshhorn Museum

In early 2011, Bruce Mau Design was selected to create a website for the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. The unique website was designed as a platform to support the voice of the artists.  

The site intended to foster a community of both national and international people who are passionate about art, culture and contemporary issues—all matters in which the Hirshhorn Museum regularly engages.

The design of the website mirrors the unique architectural structure of the museum building. Since the Hirshhorn showcases art in a rounded gallery space, the site simulates the same experience, with clusters of images selected and arranged to appear as if the user is viewing the physical gallery. Users can control with gestural movements what they see in this virtual space. The site is simple to use on all smart phones and mobile devices.
