The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston Massachusetts is known for its brilliant connection and design between old and new architecture. Its design blends the threshold between spaces throughout

the building connecting its old

design and original building

to the new additions. The

staircase was a main focus

in the study allowing a large

physical threshold that

allowed you to witness

others as they went through

along with seeing the change

between spaces as you

traveled throughout. In

addition the window design

and glass facades of the

new additions created new

visuals of the space as well.

The glass connections

between new and old structures made

the visual change in spaces much more prominant when you brought in the view

of courtyards and nature when leaving

and entering areas. The larger windows

on the outside of the new additions also allowed a connection with the city and skyline of Boston, creating a visual of the artwork and activity within the building to be viewed by the public.
