The basement of the old museum provides a lot of exhibition space with a cinema, shop and a cafe. The eastern side was excavated to provide a slightly sloped plaza that would lead visitors into center. Also small atriums were made by making holes, to provide natural light and plants into former basement. Small towers provide space for administration and vertical communication, while library, workshops and restaurant are set in cantilevered structures.
