This modern architecture is a simple square-shaped building but that doesn’t make it trivial. On the contrary, GAD is very unique in every way. It is a beautifully designed modern building, made of high-quality light materials. The construction of the gallery is designed in a very extrovert way making the building exposed to the outdoor environment. It allows outdoor art expositions and other activities.  The containers of the modern architecture are insulated on the inside, which makes the building perfectly suitable for any kind of environment.
