Arts and Cultural Buildings
Art galleries and foundations, recording studios, museum and auditoriums, this section is all about art and culture
The project stems from the need to characterize the space through the use of it.
The operator, for which the space is designed, is characterized by a collection consisting of video, artist books and works in mixed media.
Old Photo and Art Museum is a multifunctional museum structure which houses: exhibition spaces for the permanent collection, spaces for temporary exhibits, a multi-screen hall and facilities for the public (museum store, cloakroom, cafeteria, restaurant). The offices are distributed partly in the historic building, called the Ottoman School, and partly in three new buildings.+
The project takes its origins from the will to create a building with a strong visual appeal, in which to combine architectural elements and traditional materials, capable to communicate the destination for which it has been conceived; the Royal Police of Oman Museum, the place where to represent its history and the evolution along with Oman’s history and evolution.+
