Museum of Modern Arab Art

Architect: Rafael Viñoly Architects, PC

Back to Selected International Projects

This new museum encompasses approximately 33,000 square meters of gallery space, library, public areas, maintenance, dining, storage and support areas. This building is one of only a few in the world designed using a canvas-like material. This project presented many engineering challenges, including the design of an air conditioning system that can maintain proper temperature and humidity to preserve sensitive artwork and manuscripts. The museum will has two levels. MEP spaces and service corridors will be located along the perimeter to allow for changes to specific galleries while maintaining the remaining galleries open to the public. An emergency generator will be provided to support art storage areas and selected galleries displaying artwork.
