Open/Closed Book/Case

The open bookcase containing the exhibition catalogues at the start of the exhibit transforms into a varying sequence of enclosed cases, opening up again by the reading lounge at the end.

In this exhibition design for The Open Book: A History of the Photographic Book from 1878 to the Present, an open bookcase at the start of the exhibit containing the exhibition catalogues transforms into a sequence of closed exhibition cases and then opens again at the end around a reading area.
