Concept Phase for Ambassador John L. Loeb Jr. Visitor Center at Touro Synagogue for a visitor experience related to the historic experiment of religious freedom in Newport, RI.
The story to be told is many layered.
A composite of details, one layered in front of the next form a single
picture. Each layer tells of one aspect of the history of the Synagogue.
Each layer is transparent. Each layer is different. Each layer allows
one to see through to the next and the next until the whole story
is told. The story is told with light that shines through picture
in front of picture in front of words in front of light.
