We imagine a dark and compact building, a black monolith that fits in the corner of the park. The project is a triangular building, a blade lying on the boundary between the park and the city. On the inside, the volume is divided in two parts. A large void cut the entire building in the center, creating a full-height tunnel: a crossable public space, which runs through the entire volume along the axis of the park’s promenade. The two sides of the building overlooking the streets reconstruct the urban fronts, while the third creates a new wing towards the park. On this, a large ramp creates a fully glazed spiral route that intersects the volume near the tip, giving the visitor the opportunity to have a constant relationship with the park while moving through the museum.
