Andrei Duman Gallery by Relativity Architects, Woodland Hills – California

November 9th, 2015 by retail design blog

The Andrei Duman Gallery in Woodland Hills, CA redefines and explores the typology of the photographic show gallery on various fronts. Commissioned by internationally reputed photographer, Andrei Duman, this gallery continuously pushes the limits of gallery design through the use of differentiated space which in this particular case has no clear boundary. Disrupting the largely rectangular shell of the gallery, the structural system of tree branches were used to reorganize the spatial volume throughout the space.


The propagation of the branching structures are dotted throughout the space with the upward growth expanding toward the ceiling. The success of this design installation is the stunning wooden, floor to ceiling curves and the seamless relationship these curves have with the hanging photographs, giving way to the idea that you are in the landscape in which the photographs were taken. The artwork itself is hung among the trees with wire and glass frames cascading down throughout the branching systems’ canopies. The typology of gallery design is re-imagined as the hanging art pieces redefine spatial volumes with which to experience and consume these world-renown works of art.
