With an ethereal look, the National Art Museum by MAD Architects is a show of otherworldly design.

The architectural firm's design is divided into three levels of the intricate construction. At ground level, the structure serves to house all institutional ancillary functions so as to be accessed even at times when the museum above is not open. One level above rests the 20,000 square meter plaza level that is meant to house the permanent art collections and exhibits of the National Art Museum.

This level is highly compelling as it includes windows that wrap around the perimeter of this structure to create breathtaking views of the city as one looks upon art. Finally, the top floor of this museum is what the architects describe as a "domed concourse" that is meant to resemble a floating art city. With its though-out design plan and stunning facades this construction makes for a stunning show of architectural novelty.
