Occidens museum takes place into the Pamplona’s cathedral complex, crossing various spaces of different times: archaeological excavations II c fC-VIIIc aC, Romanesque palace, XI c, Archbishop's Palace XII c, and the gothic constructions of the Archdeacon palace of the XIV-XVI c. The Museum is conceived as a narrative project closer to a cinematographic discipline than to the conventional schemes of the museum through a discourse deployed through different frames and different reading levels: signs, images, objects, sounds, text, projections, codes, smells and atmospheres… The project enhances the relationship between content-continent, between architecture and art works by devising different atmospheres appropriate to each time and each space. The unity of the museum –composed of architectures of different times- is achieved by using a carpet of steel that meanders through the various rooms of millenarian architectures floating between archaic atmospheres without touching the footprints of the past, giving unity to the whole exhibition.
