Interior fittings and scenography for the museum's eight galleries (permanent and temporary exhibitions). Design of the archives, the library, the Islamic academy, the conference room, the reception room, the administrative areas and common areas of the Centre.
The Tashkent Centre for Islamic Civilisation is an emblematic project for the Republic of Uzbekistan. It was created with the aim of studying in depth the historical, scientific and spiritual wealth of the Uzbek people, and disseminating it widely to the global community.
It will also exhibit modern research studies carried out by the great scientists and religious figures who lived on the territory of modern Uzbekistan. The Centre’s main relic will be the Samarkand Kufic Koran, also known as the Usman Koran, dating from the late 7th and early 8th centuries.
Wilmotte & Associés was responsible for the scenography of the 8 galleries: Pre-Islam, Islam, Education, Science, Architecture & Urbanism, Arts, Tradition and Reinvention. The scenography is minimalist with a local touch. The light colours underline the grandeur of the space and the purity of the mission envisaged within the walls of this building. Our teams are also working on the interior design of the archives, the library, the Islamic academy, the conference room, the reception room, the administrative areas and the common areas of the Centre.
