The Frick Collection: House for Everyone

As the Frick Collection museum transformed from a luxurious 20th-century residence, the exclusiveness of the Frick Collection has isolated itself from the public that it is supposed to serve.

During the days when Henry Frick used it as a residence, the art collections were no more than a background of the family’s daily life. To reconnect the Frick Collection to the public, the project aims to highlight the domesticity by restoring its original function as a residence.

With its art collection as the background of context to demonstrate, this movement is intended to sustain the form of domestic activities with different groups of people, including visitors and locals, kids and artists related groups.

With the idea that “to destroy the part is to destroy the future,” this is the way that we redefine the meaning of domesticity in this home-like museum, by proposing the juxtaposition of different domestic possibilities for everyone to find their home there.

We can weave the publicness into this island, where we can now manifest: Frick Collection is the House for Everyone.
