Hars Aviation Museum
An existing aviation museum seeks to expand its current scope of guided tours, commercial flights and events through the addition of large pavilions to the current facility. The pavilions are to be situated among existing hangars capable of storing large aeroplanes in transit or on display for the visiting public. The circulation of how vehicles navigate the museum has been carefully considered with sizable entry and egress points.
A structurally expressive series of reinforced steel trusses support a large canopy like space and form a distinguishable and appropriate identity for the building. Double and triple height voids flanked by mezzanine spaces enable visitors to experience a close view of the aeroplanes in the HARS collection.
