According to the architects, the new Museum of Nature and Science in Jerusalem [5] will be an open structure capable of communicating with the surrounding environment. It will consist of a series of interconnected single-story buildings with large windows that will flood the interior with natural light. Each space will be flexible and adaptable to change, and each will have a different atmosphere according to the exhibit.

There will be galleries, offices, a conference center, study areas, labs and even a planetarium [6] inside. A green roof [7], themed parks and even a climbing wall will be installed, and a water cascade will drop from the roof flowing as a canal that will go through different sections creating a brilliant visual attraction and bringing light and humidity into the building.
