The Tripoli Heritage Museum is one of the first buildings planned for the new ‘Green Belt’ project in the Libyan capital city and is located next to the new People’s Congress building. The museum tells the story of Libya through a series of galleries displaying Libya's history of rebellion, revolution and machines of war. In addition to the three museum galleries, the building contains conference facilities, a large roof top restaurant, a library and an administration block.
The form of the building is inspired by Bedouin tented structures, with a decorative canopy structure extending over the building and external public spaces which provides shade and temperature regulation. The internal spaces are dug partially into the ground to integrate the building within the surrounding landscape.
