Memory Museum / Estudio America

© Nico Saieh

Sao Paulo based practice Estudio America recently completed the new Memory Museum in the cultural district of Matucana in Santiago, .

Interesting combination, as the Sao Paulo architecture scene has a strong heritage from Brazilian architects Oscar Niemeyer, Mendes da Rocha, Lina Bo Bardi, and other architects from the modern movement. The result? A pure volume, on which every effort has been put into the structure, cantilevering between two ponds on which a line of shadow on the base make the volume gravitate. Finishes are simple, with no pretension.

Under the volume, a big shadow welcomes visitors, who pass by a small lobby before entering the triple-height inside the container, with the different exhibition spaces. Circulations go on the perimeter, from where the perforated copper offers a perfect view of the outside.
