The University of California Department of Chemistry is requesting a small museum dedicated to the explanation of the structure of the atom and the periodic table of elements. The museum will be used for permanent and temporary displays and exhibits. The museum is to be located on a given site near the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore CA. Their required program is intended to emphasize the use of the museum’s open setting and temperate climate with a reliance on exterior spaces for exhibits and occupation.

To interpret, in physical form, the properties of an individual atom and mass utilizing a specific element from the periodic table.  My decision to interpret the Krypton element was primarily based on its numerical constituents.  Fundamental calculations such as electronic configuration, atomic mass, and ionisation energy levels had common dividends of 3 and/or 4.  These values were then applied to the development of a form language with elements of string theory, atomic orbitals and shell structures.  In addition to its calculations, the Krypton element’s noble gas properties served as a representation in the site’s open setting requirement.
