A series of five interconnected pods of varying sizes house exhibition areas, an immersive theatre, a gift shop and a cafe with panoramic views of the Jebel Buhais ridge.

The pods are clad in steel panels, colored to reference the different hues of the surrounding landscape as well as to shade the precast concrete structures.

Scope of Work:
