MoCCAGuy a Avellone: This concept for the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art (MoCCA) in New York City, was designed with an aggressive aesthetic aimed at increasing museum patronage.

MoCCA

The aggressive aesthetic was inspired by the comic illustration technique for expressing motion. Streaks were “drawn” onto the exterior to illustrate, as in comics and cartoons, a striking visual motion toward the street. The angle at which the museum is “flying” is 21 degrees, which expresses the Lower East Side street grid angle, desirable stadium seating angle, and is a compatible angle with Tschumi’s Blue Condos across Delancey Street.
