The building is to accurately complete the existing background.

The answer is the building hiding a secret at first having been “stolen” from the ground deposits by archaeologists, now possible to discover by everyone.

Crossing following “coats” of building dividing walls and rooms man gets engrossed in time and space to reach the origin of Piast state.

The building has a distinct direction emphasized with elongated walls in accordance with the route of old Ostrow fortifications. It is designed to some extent “from inside” - surrounding dyke relics and Lubranski wall. Mentioned walls become following coats that give direction to see the museum. From bright entrance one gets deeper to the relic hidden in the ground.

Glass should be a pre-req in museum architecture. This gorgeous archaeology museum in Poland is a good example: http://t.co/SwJj9nUv #glass
