Museum of Modern Art and Museuam of Architecture Stockholm, Sweden. Rick Shands, Architect 1990. This competition submission for the Museums of Art and of Architecture is set on the island of Skeppsholmen (the Ships' Island), formally the base of the Royal Navy. Significant existing features informed the formation of the project - the very long former rope manufacturing building (now the Asian Museum) and the centralized, domed Church, as well as the steep slope of the site. A series of parallel walls that step down the site around a cylindrical central gallery form the main idea of the museum. The cylinder is both share temporary exhibition space, as well as a feature that divides the Art and Architecture museums.
