Children’s Discovery Centre

Client: MASSAR

Infrastructure Designer: Makram Jaibaji / Buro Hapold

Area: 170, 000 m²


Landmark In Damascus, Syria

The building's structural design is influenced by the unique Damask rose, it has a shell structure that allows a dazzling scenography of light beams into the interior. The core of the rose has a big communal orientation space- the place where the cross-pollination of knowledge occurs. The central region under the open sky confronts the normal horizontal movement in the Arab city. The Massar Centre will be the heart of a Syrian educational program – Massar. The center will offer activities to empower young Syrians to contribute actively to building their future.
