Museums, armatures for collective societal experience and cultural expression, present new ways of interpreting the world. They contain knowledge, preserve information and transmit ideas; they stimulate curiosity, raise awareness and create opportunities for exchange. As instruments of education and social change, museums have the potential to shape our understanding of ourselves and the world in which we live.


The idea is to connect the building with the park and to protect it from the urban noise and traffic. An itinerary concept design begins even before the arrival at the Museum when, from the first contact with the building in the site, a reading (a priori) occurs through the sensations caused by its external characteristics, stimulating questions and queries about its nature and becoming a partial understanding as you approach the building. A symbol of old civilizations and ethnics. A longitudinal façade, only interrupted by a sail of photovoltaic panels, symbol of nowadays technologies. The project crumbles to the park and successively becomes increasingly lightweight and transparent. This succession symbolizes the different ethnic groups that follow and sediment and tends, opening the park, to reconcile man with nature.
