Mihalyo and Hahn discuss their project Maryhill Double, describing the sites’ history and their goals for the project. Inspiration was sought from the landscape and initial building, which is currently utilized as a museum. Their goal was to communicate the dramatic effect of the exterior of the existing building on the vast site, into the interior of the building. They achieved this by creating a volumetrically similar frame with no interior walls. This allowed for the containment of emptiness and the designing of space, while creating the most minimal gesture to contain volume. They also sought to respond to the landscape and express the sentiment of the site.
