    The competition gave the possibility of associating the museum with an existing manufacturing infrastructure, allowing the establishment of a dialogue between the new and the traditional.

    The new part is attached to the two original naves in order to form an abstract and  absolute whole that is materialized through the concrete that is toned with the landscape in its ocher-reddish color. 

    In the new part of the building the large north-facing skylights enable the natural lighting of the halls enriching them spatially.
