Bamyan Cultural Centre
The project proposal for Museum and Cultural Center in Afghanistan presents a new understanding of the local construction methods and usage of materials which combined together can create an innovative design. The design of the building is made not to be invasive and aims to add the volume completely into the existing landscape. This is executed by constructing the volume mostly from bricks which are made of local materials placed near the site. The plan of the building resembles typical Afghanistan village, placed on a steep terrain, which is composed by separate but connected to each other at the same time ”houses” (exposition zone, multi-functional hall, classrooms, research center, etc).
