Museum as a Spiritual Portal

The project is intended as a physical symbol of the Tribe’s presence, an entry point of transcendence, a gateway to the spirit world. With the idea embedded in Native American life that the Earth is the mind of the people, the museum is intended to be integrated into the landscape and direct people uphill naturally as they visit and learn about Lenape and Ramapo culture from spiritual experience with different scope. An area that displays artifacts is a place between––the space for tribes to host their events and the casual space for the visitors to stay. The relatively flexible circulations have multiple entrances but the exit eventually leads uphill to the spiritual land.
