National Museum of Archeology in Morrocco by OMA

OMA unveiled their design for The National Museum of Archeology and Earth Sciences (MNAST) located on one of Rabat’s highest points: the gardens of the Lyautey Residence, which used to house Morocco’s French administrator. […] The building is a long, flat isoceles triangle, resembling an ancient relic or indeed an archeologist’s tool. But the shape is primarily motivated by three axes on the site: Franklin Roosevelt Avenue, facing the city in the east; the park in the north; and the Lyautey Residence and formal gardens in the south-west.

Found at eVolo and OMA website.
