Neanderthal Museum

    We consider that the ensemble of the Neanderthal Art Center should be a great exhibition showcase, a transparent space in contact with the outdoor greenery and forested surroundings.

    A concrete or a stone wall – a reminder of the traditional walls of the area that delimit the plots – isolates us from the traffic of the national highway and introduces the nature into the Art Center. It is a building that consists of a large exhibition space, a single flexible “contain” of variable volume in height, laying on a longitudinal wall that is limiting it. The main access is indicated with a single large perforation.
