Nostalgia and antecipation mixed
Taking advantage of the excellent location the new museum is an urban landmark.The building rises from the ground in an unpredictable suspension, and is founded as a platform of large freedom / ﬂexibility of the public space, so that it allows a connection between the macro scale, and the local boundary lines. The suspended mass creates a “new monumentality” on the waterfrontand relates to the scales of AL Riwaq Doa, Museum of Islamic Art.
