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.
