New Cyprus Museum

What kind of building should bridge the past and the future? An archeological museum is serious business in the sense that is a bearer of evidence of a people’s identity. The physical aspect of such an institution must be relevant, crisp and easily understood.

We team up with Søren Jensen Rådgivere , Battle-McCarthy Engineers, Optimise  and Adeline Rispal Exhibition Designers to craft our proposal for the new archaeological museum of Cyrpus: a powerful tectonic sphere that glows over Nicosia.
