During the research for Modelos para Armar, we went through a series of spatial typologies, from which a selection ended up being used for the actual exhibition. Here is a few images of the entire research:
Avenidas, two large walls splice the space of musac into three super-narrow drawing galleries

Large Walls, appear as objects in the middle of the space, at random geometries

Levitating Walls, a space where some of the white exhibition walls are floating just a little bit
Tropical Gallery, this ended up being used without a roof, 
and it became more interesting 
since we could play with the fakeness of the room within the room

Jungle of Columns, this was used exactly as the drawing for Fernando Bryce's Kolonial Post,

The Mountain, a series of rooms and plinths arrange as an enormous pile inside Musac super-tall last room. The visitors would ascend while looking at small wall-based works or objects on the plinths, and once they reached the top they would go through a tiny door inside a deep space. We ended up using a miniature version of this for the fantastic drawings of Leonnilson

Big Oval, this was also built as in the drawing, though the "Art Fair Favela" that surrounded it became a series of dark video rooms, and in fact the transition between light and dark worked much better.

Plinth Room, a series of gradually enlarged plinths for objects, 
that end up being big enough to become a small video cabin.

Armadillo Favela, a series of slapped together concrete-board walls, that function almost like a fortress in the middle of the space.
