We applaud the objective of the museum to become‘a “dynamic museum” that can sustain evolution and growth by accumulating and producing a wide range of content through linking its archive, exhibitions, education and research activities’ (National Agency for Administrative City Construction, 2020), as it embraces the ambiguous, double-sided character of the architectural profession as an agent of cultural production on the one hand and as a creative profession on the other. We appreciate the ambition of the KMUA to become a place for more than the display of artifacts, historical heritage, and the production of cultural identity, in its choice to support the quality of spatial design, education and experimentation. This creates a cultural institution that does not only add a new icon to the local architectural landscape, but might also give a boost to the architectural creative economy in general.
