Trahan Architects: Magnolia山丘坐落在靠近密西西比河的高地上，是1791年建立的一个劳动种植园。它现在的使命是通过教育项目、研讨会、讲座、节日和其他特殊活动来阐释法国克里奥尔人的生活方式。
Trahan Architects: Situated on high ground adjacent to the Mississippi River, Magnolia Mound was a working plantation established in 1791. Today, Magnolia Mound’s mission is to illustrate and interpret the French Creole lifestyle through educational programs, workshops, lectures, festivals and other special events.
The design intent for the project is to emphasize the importance of site and topography as it relates to Magnolia Mound. The minimal intervention seeks to elevate the existing historic buildings and site by establishing a clear threshold for visitors as they circulate around the base of the mound. As one transitions through the new visitor center and ascends to the top of the mound, the building merges with the landscape to become unobtrusive and imperceptible. The top of the new structure aligns with the elevation of the high ground of the mound, establishing a datum which links old and new architecture on site.
Translucent channel glass was selected to subtly obscure occupants within and around the new building like an impressionist painting – blurring the distinction between new and old, building and landscape.
博物馆展示箱的设计是对新建筑干预的补充。受Donald Judd和Sol Lewitt作品的启发，这些实心铝灯具试图在雕塑、家具和建筑之间架起桥梁；提供存储空间、展示机会和销售点。
The museum display cases were designed as a complimentary element to the new architectural intervention. Inspired by the work of Donald Judd and Sol Lewitt, these solid aluminum fixtures attempt to bridge between sculpture, furniture and architecture; providing storage space, display opportunities, and point of sale.
