If you’ve visited the Brooklyn Museum at any point in the last six months or so you know that the Great Hall—that huge glass-ceilinged room right after you enter, next to the gift shop—has been either partly or entirely blocked for construction. This morning bloggers@brooklynmuseum posted progress shots from the architects Situ Studio, who are designing an installation titled reOrder for the Hall’s reopening on March 5, 2011. Sixteen of these sculptural installations—at once evocative of Victorian dresses and vaguely Christo-esque with their billowing, wrapped forms—will fill the Great Hall, which will be an incredible sight judging by the first full-scale mock-up Situ recently completed in a donated Midtown space (pictured). See it alongside a rendering of the final product, after the jump.
