Text description provided by the architects. In a very small space (163,50 m2) and plot bounded by three medians converges a wide spectrum of rich heritage. On one side in the horizontal plane underlying archaeological remains of an ancient structure of Iberian wells to which a system is superimposed Roman sewers.

On the other hand in the vertical plane emerging elements of a fortified medieval tower system of the city as well as the remains of the Roman wall. And finally the bearing wall structure of a building that suffered the ravages of the Lisbon earthquake of 1755 and still remained standing.

The project will be built therefore traces a route between the past has been left to each create a new space with a dual use: a new top floor using file and at the bottom the of exhibition hall.
