FR-EE’s design for a new museum in the Middle East is inspired by the mechanics of a camera. A new institution dedicated to collecting and exhibiting photography and photographic equipment, the building’s form functions as a large public canopy providing shaded outdoor areas, water features and local vegetation. The interior is organized radially from the center of the building with a spiraling ramp that connects the interior to emphasize spatial continuity. The façade is composed of a splayed steel structure, clad in thin panels of local stone that interpret traditional Islamic motifs in an intricate hexagonal pattern.
