An ongoing project to extend the current museum in Bethlehem to incorporate exhibition spaces and public provisions. The scheme is green in its design and concept offering passive means of cooling and heating while also creating a multi layered green skin that is responsive to the landscape, climate and available resources.

Series of seasonal stepping rooms and courtyards are created with various micro climates for the different habitats and species. The design of the facades builds on the traditional clay making skills with a contemporary touch to it.
