Science Galaxy: Tehran Museum of Science and Nature

Best Architectural Design for Museum

About the project
The city is a vast settlement that provides its citizens with a bed full of diverse and conflicting capabilities. The Science Museum is an example of a collective arena that can play an effective role in raising awareness and updating society. It is a place full of fascinating events which, in addition to displaying science and presenting scientific achievements, is a place full of interaction and experience for the users to enjoy and discover the intuition and passion for themselves. This special location, along with the topography and structure of the site, led the formation of the project to become a landmark and define a new landscape in the city of Tehran. Like another platform to revisit the city, in the following order:
•Located in proper urban geography and main commuting routes
•A function that is combined with all the components, with the natural and human landscapes around it
•Increasing the radius of impact on the city and interacts with the surrounding environment

Applicant and authors of the project
Third Skin Architects.
Third skin’s design process always starts by identifying the key criteria of a project: What is the primary attitude as response to main question of design, and which parameters can be considered as follower ideas. All decisions are based on project specific information, so our effort as architects is sandwiched in the window of opportunity between analysis and implementation.
