RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The Madina Museum project, first of its kind in Saudi Arabia, responds to a government call for a cultural visitor center and museum, located at Al Madinah Al Monawarah City, the second holiest city for Islam. Inaugurated by the king, the project is highly valued for its reflection of the city's rich history. While the holy city allows entrance only to those of Muslim faith, the project is situated strategically within an oasis at the edges, where prophet Muhammad (PBUH) lived and lies, in a location that allows people from all nationalities and religions to visit. The design concept was generated through a deep understanding and poetic interpretation of the origins and context of the holy city. Drawing its inspiration from multiple layers of religious and cultural references, the design approach cultivated a rich combination of culture, religion, identity, and context. Islamic architectural concepts such as unity within diversity, the duality of existence, the heavenly gardens, and Islamic geometry were applied through the use of historic Islamic architectural elements. This include the use of Muqarnas, an intricate structural glass facade that allows light to penetrate throughout while providing protection against wind, pressure, and heat. The project is designed to host an information center, main exhibition hall, temporary exhibition halls, multipurpose hall, business center, shops, administrative offices, prayer hall, main core and service core, as well as areas for future expansion, all hosted within 30,479 square meters. The project also features a contemporary wall, a massive 140 meter long brick wall inspired by the ancient city walls, decorated and patterned with Islamic geometry and motifs reflecting the traditional carpets. This design was submitted to Al Madina Al Munawarah Development Authority in Saudi Arabia, for the Welcome Center Design Competition in 2016 and earned the 1st place award.

CHALLENGE:
The project aimed to develop an iconic structure that would represent the city (if not the whole country), implement a design that stand out while preserving the identity and to address environmental challenges.
