About this Project
This project involves rethinking the design and function of a museum, a cultural center for nomadic peoples, and local field stations—each with a distinct role in the preservation of Niger’s unique paleontological, archaeological and cultural heritage. Scientists, social scientists, architects, planners and the public in Niger will collaborate to develop the mission and plans for these innovative, energy-efficient cultural initiatives, which shepherd the repatriation and long-term stewardship of priceless artifacts originating from the region.
