The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose displays the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts on exhibit in the western United States. To expand their story West Office was enlisted to design a permanent exhibit on the ancient art of Alchemy which has its roots in Egypt.
After the positive reception of this exhibit West Office and ELS Architects were enlisted to conceive a new museum dedicated to the alchemy art. This new museum would present a complete history of alchemy with AV experiences and immersive environments. In addition to exhibits the museum will include a theater, hands-on demonstrations of the seven steps of the alchemical process, lab workstations, classrooms, and a meditation chamber.
