The main construction is a pavilion for the exhibition and storage of an important private contemporary and modern Brazilian art collection.

Floor Plan

It is a simple volume, with 5.5 m wide by 28 m long, made by two concrete walls and a steel structure as a roof. Besides a central rounded skylight, a gap between the roof and the walls allows for natural lightning. The pavilion has two different floor-to-ceiling heights.
