The new Annenberg Space for Photography is the first gallery of its kind presenting digital and print photography in a dynamic, unified venue. The design celebrates and supports the medium of photography, and the interior architecture reinforces the multi-sensory experience of the exhibitions. The 10,000-square foot Space for Photography features exhibition areas (a center gallery as well as gallery space encircling the central gallery) and an interactive area with flat, touch screen technology where visitors can interact with exhibition materials, connect to the web and upload their photographs. The Space for Photography also contains an office area for administrative needs, a workshop area for lectures, support areas for conferencing and a catering pantry with professional kitchen. An important aspect of the space is the ability to form an expanded, single space for large gatherings or lectures by sliding the dividing wall between the center gallery and workshop/administration area.
