From the architect. The Palaeolithic art in the Coa Valley is perhaps man’s first land art manifestation.

The Museum is conceived as an installation in the landscape.

The monolithic triangular form is a direct result of the valley’s confluences.

Its materiality evokes the local stone yards and reflects two different natures: the concrete’s matter, and the local stone’s texture and colour.

“A project starts as simply an idea for a volume and things only get complicated when we start putting in the windows. The windows change everything, constrain everything. This is why, throughout history, museums have been major architectural works. They don’t have windows.”

Depois de ouvir os Aqts. Camilo e Tiago no Simpósio da UPT fiquei realmente com vontade de visitar o museu. Fico feliz por saber através dos próprios que realmente o museu foi "cuidadosamente" concebido e na realidade as suas ideias funcionaram lindamente naquela paisagem de "tirar a respiração"!
Felicidades para ambos.

I've been there and it quite disappointing. The texture and the entrance "crack" are interesting but everything else is very bad. The museum is really dark inside, the paths are not logical, and the different circulations are quite confusing. In such a minimal work, the way they drew windows is also careless,each one with a different detail.It is much better in photos than in reality.

Do you mind if I link this article from my blog? I find myself at your site more and more regularly to the point where my stops here are almost daily now! Thanks once more for putting this online. I unquestionably liked every part of it.

O exterior do edificio ao nivel de fachadas e mesmo pedra e e granito e a textura e "gradada" (se bem que possam existir outros nomes para isso). Pelas fotos parece que o betao utilizado tera sido colorido para mimicar o tom da pedra.

Audric · March 17, 2010

I agree that it's quite a beautiful work, but I feel that the subtlety of the building's integration into the landscape (from the direction in which it is approached) is completely overwhelmed by the expanse of asphalt parking.

This is a beautiful project from my country. Can someone tell me the type of stone on the exterior surfaces?

Tiago · March 17, 2010 02:43 AM

é betão não é pedra...

Joshua · March 16, 2010

Beautiful, beautiful work. A museum that has subtle intrinsic value without being overbearing, reflects the content, and is not a "white cube" display case. I'm impressed.

enceladus · March 16, 2010

finally something from portugal that is not a white rendered cube... it even has texture and is extremely well integrated in the landscape...

very good project indeed...
