NATIONAL MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY



The National Museum of Natural History, taking shape. Like a living tree canopy, the Tree of Life dome allows some daylight indoors and views to the outside as a means of indoor-to-outdoor connectivity while offering some shade and the unique Filipino experience of “maaliwalas.”


A view of the courtyard facade: almost the entire building structure of this neo-classical has been preserved, a cultural heritage treasure and at the same time saved tons of new building material.
