Rather than placing a building on the land, we propose an integrated campus of buildings immersed in the land. Largely underground, the museum emerges from the landscape at key moments, denying constant views of the sky and placing equal emphasis on the connection to the land. Introducing this contrast is the first suggestion to visitors that the museum is not just about the sky but about connecting the celestial to the terrestrial – the profundity of the sky with the monumentality of the earth.
