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.
