symbolic. Integrating an inner green court serves as an exceptional view from the inside as well as serving the purpose of a more sustainable design that will help lowering the heat gain levels in summer. Also, green roofs were integrated as part of the concrete structures, giving the feel of the structure's age and belonging to the site.
From the inside, a continuous exhibition space lines is the basis creating a new type of journey for visitors flowing along the project’s axis.
The museum’s roof defines an iconic silhouette that …
