Palestinian Museum Building, Birzeit, Palestine
18 May 2016 – The Opening Ceremony for the Palestinian Museum – a contemporary interpretation of traditional Palestinian dance forms against the museum as a very rich theatrical backdrop.
“The landscape of the Palestinian Museum has the ‘worked’ quality of a city; every element of it has been touched and tells a story of intervention, production, culture, environment, commerce. Like a city, the terraced landscape has embedded within it its history. The approach to the Palestinian Museum is to draw on this history of the terraced landscape, embedding the museum into its immediate site and drawing from this site to tell a larger story of a diverse culture.”

Grand Museum of Egypt, Cairo, Egypt, North East Africa

Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo
The proposal for the Grand Egyptian Museum begins by forming a new ‘edge’ to the Plateau, by creating a gentle slope as a thin veil of translucent stone structured by fractal geometry; opening and closing like foldings within the desert sand. As seen from Cairo, this newly inscribed surface of translucent stone constructs a dynamic identity; yet from within the museum, this surface traces a new visual trajectory towards the Pyramids.

Kildare County Council Offices Building
This project is formed around the public space of the people, the civic garden. A slowly inclined ground plane gradually ascends from the street creating a civic amphitheatre for Naas. The sloped amphitheatre is an “event surface” expanding the public realm of the town and opening up the entire site to the town.
