Metabolic Museum

This museum changes as you do. It changes as our society evolves and reinvents itself under the guise of globalisation and technology improvements and developments. We must prepare for a future in which modularity offers opportunities to create spaces that adapt to the lives of people experiencing architecture. The design for the Metabolic Museum takes into account the specified programme of creating a building that can showcase New Zealand’s identity and this nation’s strive to move into a more inclusive future. Adapatability is key to understadning and sharing, and our architecture should be setting the tone for frameworks we may want to see being implemented in New Zealands social and cultural future.
