A design by Paul Kaloustian MArch ’01 for the New Cyprus Museum has been awarded Third Prize through an international competition. A total of 129 offices participated in the two-stage competition that sought concepts to replace the island nation’s existing 131-year-old archaeological museum. Kaloustian’s design invites the public to enter the museum through its transparent and shaded exterior. A museum library, restaurant, and shops on the ground floor activate the space while also fitting naturally into the landscape.
