Medicinal Herbs Garden Museum

Best Architectural Design for Museum

About the project
This museum intends to exhibit the rich historical heritage of Iranian medicine science and the capabilities of Iranian scientists in this field. These include exhibiting Iranian herbs, historical medical objects, introducing the historical Iranian health and medicine specialists, and other related information and objects. Dating back to at least 2500 years, Persian Garden is an architectural concept, which has lived strongly within Persian culture for ages. In a museum, which tends to exhibit the achievements of Iranian medicine science, using this concept through another language and expression was a logical option. Everything in the museum, even the design itself, is in service of presenting the heritage of Iranian medicine history. The museum is designed to host several sections, such as the historical timeline of Iranian medicine and medical history, the small-scaled objects of Iranian pharmacists and physicians, the room for Persian “scents”, herbs exhibition, etc.
