A Tomb, A Museum of Nature
Wherever we build, we consume resources that are sourced somewhere. Whatever we construct, we bring impacts to the ground, water, and sky. Designing a museum of nature within the natural landscape is inherently paradoxical—we will have to damage and encapsulate the very subject that we will be celebrating. This museum is a full embracement of this paradox. It delivers a clear and bold sign of human intervention that is constructed out of many on-site and naturally sourced materials. The structures act as instruments that are played by natural forces and the passage of time while the resulting symphony will be appropriated by all human visitors.
