An interesting project done by Desypher (architecture, planning, urban design), a Melbourne based design office with associated offices in Kuala Lumpur and Dubai.

The design of the Islamic Museum of Australia aims to challenge ideas of what and how an Islamic museum in Australia should be. It appears with few iconic Islamic elements - rather the facade is an austere composition of rusted steel panels and woven mesh. This sublimeness makes for a compelling prequel for the gradual unravelling of the rich experience within.

Read the interview with Issam Nabulsi and Khalid Bouden, directors of Desypher, soon in the 7th issue of Islamic Arts Magazine and learn more about this and other interesting architectural projects.

Here is the video presentation of the project:
