THE CLOISTERS MUSEUM / NEW YORK, NY

RESTORATION AND NEW DESIGN FOR THE ST.GUILHEM CLOISTER

The St. Guilhem Cloister, located in the Cloisters Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, houses the 12th century artifacts from the Benedictine Abbey St. Guilhem le Desert in the south of France. Ms. Easton was asked to reinterpret the Gallery which is the only cloister in the museum with a protective roof and ceiling.  The project included exterior restoration and new design for the interior to allow natural daylight to filter into the space documenting the passage of time through the changing pattern of sunlight daily and seasonally.
