From the architect. The concept of the open air exhibition grounds is based on a road - while passing by, your route will be surrounded by different landscapes. The solution forms a long 8-shaped path, where functions with different character are placed in succession like a comic strip.

All space necessary for the museum is scooped into the landscape leaving rest of the environment as natural as possible: natural and artificial landscape is clearly separated. A hollow ranging from 10 cm to 4 m forms large-scale open-air exhibition grounds.
