Murad Castle Museum – Solomon Pools

Bethlehem - Palestine

After renovating and rehabilitating the ottoman castle of the Solomon’s pool site, a new addition is projected within evident elements that differentiate it from what’s existing, the concept relies on contrasting what is contemporary to what is historical in the castle.
The castle is set to become a national museum; a glass skin enfolds the 5 remaining rooms of the castle to allocate five different historical eras witnessed by the Palestinian Lands.
Historical acquisitions that stretch from the Bronze Age and into the Islamic era are displayed in the museum, with an additional platform dedicated to contemporary art among the rich history and heritage of Palestine.
