Use: Museum Concept/Building Design
The theme of the museum design is related to the concept of a pit. All the forces of the building center around a courtyard. The galleries are the most important spaces in the museum. They take on the conceptual association of the pit. The association is materialized by the orientation of the galleries onto the sculpture court yard. The organization of the rest of the university buildings of that area emphasized the open space on the west side of the site.
