The ‘PH museum’ by FR-EE is a cultural institution designed to showcase photography
and photographic equipment. situated in a desert climate, the museum’s form functions
as a large canopy, providing shaded public outdoor areas that are complemented
by water features and local vegetation.

Inspired by the mechanics of a camera, the organization of the museum reflects
the complexity of camera lens. program is organized radially from the center of
the building and a spiraling ramp connects these spaces to emphasize spatial continuity.

The facade is composed of a splayed steel structure, clad in thin panels of local stone
that interpret traditional islamic motifs in an intricate hexagonal pattern.
perforations in the stone panels allow the main lobby to be naturally illuminated
and casts lattice-like shadows that help animate the space. these apertures in the facade
are reduced over exhibition spaces where environmental conditions must be carefully controlled.

  1. se posso permettermi di dare un’idea di fronte a tanta bellezza suggerirei anche la progettazione di un mezzo volante che fa parte della nostra tradizione italiana di pogettazione anche in sede di design
