Sigiriya Museum

Not only was this building to be a museum, but also an information centre, a research centre, and an office for the management of the site,” says Archt Ellepola. To contain such complex and diverse elements, the character of the building had to be carefully thought out. He explains, “Any building on the site had to be secondary, or even tertiary to the monument, and not compete with or distract from, the archeological character of the site.”Sigiriya Museum

In keeping with this concept, the building stands surrounded by forest and water, indistinguishable from its environs. Its interior simulates the ‘true experience’ of Sigiriya, providing visitors with an atmospheric introduction to the site. The essence of Sigiriya is one that must be absorbed and processed within oneself, says Archt Ellepola, and inspired by the concept that ‘artefact is text’ the museum allows individuals the opportunity to create their own understanding and interpretation
