Arár Museum
2012
Arar, Saudi Arabia

The museum for the Ministry of Antiquities is located in the town of Arar, Saudi Arabia.
The tent-like  forms define a series of interconnected galleries through smaller garden spaces.
The Arar landscape scheme is based on an abstraction of Arar natural land and desert formations. The soft roof shapes accommodate a single large enclosed space with a simple and clear internal plan that provides total internal flexibility.
The emblematic scheme provides a striking silhouette for Arar and a new cultural landscape. Because of the compact nature of the scheme, the outdoor area is seen as a space for tented outdoor exhibitions or ancillary cultural events.
