The design seeks to integrate the following approaches:
Reinterpretation, Soft, Meander
The curvilinear, soft profile of the design contrasts with the rigid and geometrical shape of the nearby museum. The reinterpretation is undertaken while referencing the architectural language of the Museum of Islamic Art.
Balance, Site-specific
The idea is to reinterpret the nearby museum in its shape and form. Two distinct grid systems developed based on the north-south direction and the Qibla direction overlap each other to create its unique yet related patterns.
Geometrical, Simple, Balanced
The waiting area in the cylindrical form provides a panoramic view of its surroundings including the skylines and the museum.
