Nothing new, by the way! Passing under the unpretentious street building, we discover the first austere stone courtyard devoted for sculpture, limited by a gracious nave, built with primitive wood trusses and gently lighted by the central lantern. Further on, an off centre screen door, connects with the second courtyard, this one devoted for leisure, with exuberant vegetation. .....space, light, simplicity, sequence, mystery, surprise, sun, vegetation, flowers and butterflies.
