The aim of the Museum and Cultural center is to invent a cultural center of new type without duplicating existing models, to create a hybrid space that takes into account the realities of the cultural Moroccan context, to provide different content and reach a diverse audience. The shape of the traditional nomadic tent provides the starting point for the architectural concept.
The museum expresses its identity through this simple and straightforward architectural concept, implemented to provide an extremely rich, original and unique spatial experience. A bold action for a remarkable project, Dakhla Museum is a cultural and singular space that exerts a certain fascination and where imagination comes to life. Its design is revealed through a simple architecture, but also extremely elaborated volume. The project draws the idea of its framework from the concept of the tent and the desert, its different sized outline makes it unique and visible. This spectacular aspect is implemented to draw in a large public. The building is in visual harmony with the bay of Dakhla. Its folded shapes create an evolving dynamic architecture. The vertical emergences allow the project’s functionality.
Interiors are equally dynamic. The walls system provides a diversity of spaces and exhibition conditions. The visitor moves freely, in the continuous volumes of the museum guided by his own sense of space and sensitivity. There is no defined circulation, no corridors, just the freedom of taking a stroll through the Sahara.
