The exhibition was originally curated by and presented at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, and the Cooper Hewitt presentation required sophisticated design to re-present the same objects in a space half the size.

Isometric designed a refined yet edgy visual identity that bridges exquisite couture pieces from European designers with street fashion and feminist artworks.

The exhibit architecture is inspired by the plan of the Córdoba Mosque in Spain, using translucent half-arches to subdivide the museum’s largest gallery into intimate, thematic rooms.

Along with sweeping curvilinear platforms and minimalist custom labels, the architecture democratizes the space and evokes a shared sense of community.
