Provo National Museum
The Turks & Caicos National Museum located on Grand Turk has been pursuing a dream for the past 10 years of expanding to Providenciales. A critical mass of local and international interest has sparked a growing momentum towards realizing that dream. The Board of Trustees commissioned our firm to produce a conceptual design for presentation at a gala fundraiser, which signals the beginning of a discussion of what the Provo National Museum ought to be.
Beginning with a draft space program provided by the National Museum's director, and informed by several of the Museum's Trustees as well as the experience of life in Providenciales' climate and culture, we have crafted an arrangement of functional spaces and skinned them in a modern and graceful container. Envisioned to be developed in phases, the introductory phase would occupy 10,000 square feet.
Building on this visualisation as a springboard, the project is now in Design Development with the collaborative input of local users, contributors, donors, the museum operators and other stakeholders.
