Hugo Bugg was appointed by the Trento Museum of Science (MUSE) as design consultants working with Renzo Piano Building Workshop to design a fascinating Eastern Arc tropical landscape within the new science museum of Trento, Italy.

The top living attraction of MUSE, the 600 sqm tropical conservatory will recreate the living forests of the Udzungwa mountains, a biodiversity hotspot located in the Eastern Arc mountain chain of Tanzania. A vibrant and engaging display will capture visitor attention in an imaginative journey through the living rainforest.
