In this project, we investigates the meaning of Arab modern art museum by creating a route that brings visitors the sense of ritual.
The center and it’s layered peripheries are envisioned as the juxtaposition of interwined intangible Arab-Islamic culture tradition and tangible everyday life.
Ritual: a religious or solemn ceremony consisting of a series of actions performed according to a prescribed order.
The concept is also a metaphoric move taht teh arab modern art museum is a shining eblem connecting the past an present of Sharjah’s belonging memory, the simple yet powerful move deviates from the boredom of migrating Islamic cultural heritage into elite modern architectural language which only offers an immediate labeled image of Sharjah or UAE as a whole.
