The Traditional Food House and House of Poetry have been designed by Acciona Cultura, and Traditions and Life on the Land pavilions are based on the design by Ralph Appelbaum Associates.
The museum project is said to combine the most innovative experiential, participatory and interactive technologies through multisensory and immersive video installations and projection mapping, together with traditional objects and informative graphics.
