Text description provided by the architects. Sao Paulo based practice Estudio America recently completed the new Memory Museum in the cultural district of Matucana in Santiago, Chile.

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 skin offers a perfect view of the outside.
