The Museum is conceived as a large covered full-height space, cut by paths suspended on different levels, strongly connected with the context. To the south, an artificial hill, climbs over the line of the tram and the road, connecting directly, the sea and the museum with the Tahtitornin Park . The composition of the Museum is a simple sequence. A series of tree structures support a great cover. Two large volumes, meant to be exhibitions and conference hall, are suspended at half height, leaving the ground floor free, for people, reception activities, commercial, administrative, technical, temporary installations. Two technical skins made of glass, dab and protect the interior.
