Best Architectural Design for a Museum

About the project
Museum proposal for a country with a long maritime history.
Inspired by the typical dhows of ships from the Middle East region and in the incense trade, different exhibition halls are in the shape of incense burners, and the main building with the interpretation room inside represents a ship's hull with wood and steel, a communion between the past and the present.
The museum consists of five stilt houses with different uses as well as a port and open-air theater and heritage restaurant.
