The proposal is a simple circular building volume that opens to the south, where the facade is dazzled with stacked firewood. the area has great need for a unifying grip. Using the museum and the programs related to museum operations as an anchor for the various sub-areas the situation can be improved. The concept aims to establish programs along the country yard and extend the path so that it forms a natural loop. Parking, camping and the exhibition area is anchored to the central building.
The museum building is performed with high environmental ambitions, and the applications enclosed in a circular energy efficient climate shell. The direction of resolving building form underscores the museum's function as a unifying grip for the whole area. Built courtyard path incorporated into the building.
