Archipelago Mussels Gallery Hall (AMGH) will be a masterpiece building inspired by Indonesia as the world's largest island country with a wealth of marine resource depicted in the shape of shells on the roof and seaweed on the side of the building. AMGH is a building or space for repositories and the exhibition of art, especially for the study of primary evidence relating to art and cultural heritage. The 6-storey building with an area of 23,587 m2 is planned to be built in Bali, Indonesia. It is based on the consideration of the number of tourists both domestic and foreign on the island of the gods.
In terms of planning, AMGH use Sketchup for architectural design, so obtained the outline of the shape of the building, which was then modeled structurally using Tekla Structure. As for the architecture on AMGH (shape of shells on the roof, seaweed on the side of the building, parking gate, and roof of entrance) is integrated from Sketchup to Tekla Structure by modeling axis line for truss in Sketchup, so will make it easier in modeling at Tekla Structure.
AMGH is designed with a modern building concept that combines concrete, steel, and wood with green building concept. The use of glass facades as part of efforts to reduce the use of light energy, the provision of space for plants and air circulation is comfortable so as to reduce the use of Air Conditioner. In addition to functioning as museum and arts, AMGH also serves for a gathering place for teenager who love to study, exercise and entertainment. AMGH is supported by mini library facilities, basketball court and cafeteria so that the concept of education, sport, and entertainment is integrated in one building.
With that kind of various facilities, hopefully AMGH can attract juvenile to learn the history, culture and art from various regions in Indonesia. Because without the young generation who want to know the history of the nation then the nation can lose its cultural identity.
