    Memory

    The museum that we propose is consistent with its origin: its city, its history and its experiences. A diamond shaped piece – crystal carved from the salt – contains the entire program that is requested for the Carnival Museum.

    A Crystal reflecting the external environment – the life of the city – with all its hues. A Crystal that transmits all its activity and inner movement to the outside and is in permanent and lively dialogue with the city. A Crystal that makes the museum a living, changing and dynamic element that receives all the energy of the city.
