Designed by Schwartz Besnosoff + SO Architecture, their competition winning proposal for the Museum of Nature and Science in Jerusalem emphasizes the desire to create an open, absorbent, breathing building – the type of building that communicates with the environment, and not a closed structure with fences and a guard. In accordance with the sustainable planning approach, the building’s external appearance is restrained and modest, on the one hand blending into the environment, and on the other hand enveloping a flexible, multifaceted, and dynamic structure. More images and architects’ description after the break.
We recently shared Albert McDonald’s winning entry for the COD competition, and now SO Architecture just shared their proposal with us. The proposal entitled “Free Plan (T)” incorporates the free plan of Le Corbusier in an effort to leave the inner organization undisturbed. Yet, the free plans also means “no walls shall disturb one to live among nature”. Taking inspiration from Raymond’s work and incorpation of nature, the firm proposes to “take the house into the landscape”.
