Located in Philippine capital city of Manila, the upcoming 'Museum of Indigenous Knowledge' is inspired by the ancient Neolithic period of history.

Designed by Japanese design firm Kengo Kuma & Associates, the proposed 29,500 square foot history museum will feature a cave-shaped and organic exterior inspired by the the Philippine's cultural heritage, beginning during the ancient Neolithic period. The structure will resemble a hollowed-out rock that opens up to the sky, and will also have both ponds and waterfalls alongside lattices of organic growth.

The choice of making the exterior cave-shaped and organic was to help create a natural experience in an urban environment. Inside the museum, visitors will be treated to a more conventional modern interior, and be able to examine cultural exhibits, eat at an in-house restaurant or spend some time at the museum's gift shop.
