The New Museum’s request for the HUB and Source Center design concept indicates their openness to art as communication and as ‘source’, manifested in every possible way.

At once an experience and a frozen memory, the internet trespasses physical limitations and creates an anaesthetic space. The internet has enabled us with the power of digital information, it has led to the transitions from magazines to blog-azines, broadcast to pod-casts, and mail to E-mail, to name a few. Digitalization has also led to miniaturization; the term “gallery” can also refer to a dematerialized set of online thumbnails available on demand. This has become a contagious condition and one which has found its way into other media such as network television, music, gaming and now art and architecture.

Our proposal combines these aspects in a new triangle; internet, hub and lobby spaces will be real-time connected, an interface will create not only a strong social local network but immediately becomes part [link] of the international world wide web.
