Armenian American Museum

We envision the Armenian American Museum as a center at home in its environment and an environment onto itself. The museum’s location, in a basin surrounded by mountains, recalls the siting of the Armenian capital of Yerevan and the ringed design of its city center. Our horizontal design combines interwoven pavilions of varying heights, plazas, gardens and vistas under a floating, bowl-shaped canopy, erasing all boundaries between structure and landscape.
