Museum Design

Concept: Resurrecting

The Nepali Museum of Ancient Architecture is like a time machine hidden in the Yatra city and becomes a window into a time of ancient history before the earthquake. Guests will learn about historic architecture buildings that had never been discovered by earthquake that have now been protected by time. Using the high technology to resurrect and display traditional Nepali architecture technique, the museum strives to perform as a bridge of “the past” and “the present” through modern manifestation of “being plentiful” and “being concrete”.


The Museum focuses on culture and contemporaneity, and the relationship between technique and artistry based on today’s life. By introspecting traditional architecture techniques, it presents a modern memory of the ancient architecture. The exhibition builds up a platform and window for the modern public to learn about the knowledge of ancient architecture by combining a lateral culture and historical information with a linear transformation of spatial form.
