Museum of Discovery and Science

Best Architectural Design for Museum

About the project
The highest points of the site were chosen as the location of establishment because there contain less vegetation. The building was designed with respect to nature, with minimal intervention, conforming to the slope of the land and complementing the appearance of the existing hills.
A building between the earth and the sky, watching the earth from one side and the sky from the other. In order to increase the sense of curiosity in the audience, the entrances of the building with a mysterious glow in the three corners speak about a special event in it, and invite inquiring minds to discover the hidden inside secret.
Sciences based on the world's oldest scientific journal (Britannica) in three main branches of basic sciences, were arranged in three separate buildings. Despite the spatial independence, all three have connected spaces in the lower floors. Permanent and temporary exhibitions were designed, so that the museum is always surprising.
