Outside the museum, there's a set of tall pillar like columns with silvery spruces growing out of the top. The pillars are set on a diagonally slanted slope, so walking around and between them is slightly disorienting. The idea is to convey the dizziness and confusion of being forced into exile, and the experience of not quite being at home in the diaspora. Another simple yet highly effective spatial device. The main skin of the museum is seen on the right.
