White Wheat Museum
Ashgabat – 2005
The White Wheat Museum was established in Ashgabat to relay the historical story of white wheat of Turkmenistan to future generations. Modern farm equipment and practices are displayed on the ground floor of the two-floor museum building, while historical artifacts are exhibited on the basement floor. Also there is a conference hall with a capacity of 200 people which is designed to host activities that may contribute to the improvement of the farming in the region.
The exterior of the White Wheat Museum which has a remarkable design with its tower and the decoration of “wheatear bundle” that surrounds the building like a crown have an eclectic style with overriding expressionist elements. The wheatear motive is the basic element for the interior design as well and the use of similar motives has created a semi-classical atmosphere in the decoration.
Features of the Building: The museum is built on a land of almost 25,000 square meters, with a 5,000 square meters indoor area.
