Palestinian Museum | Bir Zeit

Birzeit, West Bank, Palestine


The landscape of the Palestine has the ‘worked’ quality of a city; every element of it has been touched and tells a story of intervention, production, culture, environment and 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.

The Grand Egyptian Museum | Giza, Egypt

Giza, Egypt


The site for the Grand Egyptian Museum is located at the edge of the first desert plateau between the pyramids and Cairo. It is defined by a 50m level difference, created as the Nile carves its way through the desert to the Mediterranean, a geological condition that has shaped Egypt for over 3,000 years.

Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre | Northern Ireland

Antrim, Northern Ireland


The Giant’s Causeway lies in Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coast World Heritage Site, a landscape of cliffs formed by hexagonal basalt stones, agricultural landscapes and cliffside walks. Utilising the large difference in level across the site, two folds are created in the landscape. One, extending the line of the ridge, accommodates the building. The second, extending the level of the road, screens the car park from view.

Bigfoot

Los Angeles, United States


“Bigfoot” was a 1997 ideas competition to design a football stadium at Santa Monica State beach in order to entice football teams back to LA which has been deserted by two football teams over the previous two years.

We proposed a floating football stadium – a ship – which bypasses the problems of siting the stadium and addresses the increasing mobility of football teams, if the team is sold the football stadium can go with them.
