Afghanistan National Museum Competition
The building concept is based around the idea on how to best represent the heritage and the people of Afghanistan through a practical, innovative, and enduring physical plan that provides a clear and simple organization for the visitor to follow a natural progress through the site. This is accomplished by using the spatial concept where by the visitor of the museum is led through a sequence of visual and physical experiences to draw them to the next encounter.
The horizontal site is developed by combining the axis between the site entry and parking area, the new and existing museum, and the visual site line to the National Institute for Archeology where by creating a strong visual connection between the different building and site amenities. The vertical site is developed to reflect the beautiful naturally occurring topography of Afghanistan. Upon entering the Museum a visitor is greeted by a grand hall.
