As part of a current project I am proposing that large paintings be hung on a translucent polycarbonate wall, the idea is that the wall is translucent and you can read the position of the paintings from the outside and the inside has this wonderful warm diffuse light. I am trying to find precedents and the only convincing one I can find is the national portrait gallery in london that has paintings hung on glass partitions. Zumpthor's art galery in bregenz has the external apearence I am aiming for yet teh interior is concrete so the transparency is avoided. Does anyone know of any other examples or systems for doing what I propose, I am worried that the translucent polycarbonate will contrast against the pictures far too much and wash the colours out.
Many thanks
