The project presents a principle of staggering in the slope that responds to the urban variables, being summoned inside a way of inhabiting characteristic of the hill, this is, inhabiting participation in the vertical one.

The project of it ordered constituting you as crag that opens up to be related with the context (mirador situation). In the interior the visitor is interrelated as much with the exhibition as with the building through interior terraces those that acquire meaning in being always looking at you and living the program of the museum in a to inhabit vertical, playing with situations of I appear and of lights, allowing the orientation of the internal event.

In the project two ways are worked that present the two plots that it articulates the place. These are picked up through two space intentions:
Superior way of the hill: to inhabit of mirador
Way of the gulches: a to inhabit interior.

These two ways are related with inhabiting of the museum:

To inhabit miradors: it rescues the patrimonial aspect in their relationship with the environment, generating distension in inhabiting: cafeterias, gangplank and miradors.

To inhabit interior: toward the interior of the museum, the own space for the exhibition, the dynamic journeys and the entertainment.

The project, therefore, presents a double accessibility:

Superior of Neighborhood: for up you consents with a global vision of the context, generating a mirador situation, constituting an encounter place for the sector.

Inferior related with the urban plot: related with the gulch, it presents the articulation that relates the two plots in an interior street generated by the project, taking relationship with the I root to the floor, generating a sequence of situations that you/they go being discovered to the foot.
