Nomadic Museum

The Nomadic Museum was originally designed by famed Japanese architect Shigeru Ban, and began traveling around the world in 2005. Its shipping container construction makes it simple to deconstruct and rebuild in the next location, but the details of the museum change each time. The museum’s purpose is to house Gregory Colbert’s profound exhibition Ashes and Snow; the artist collaborates with engineers in each location to build a distinctive iteration of the structure everywhere it goes.
