The museum building is set to the entire field, focusing on the structural modulation concept that allows the creation of the whole from its parts.
The systematization of the structure refers to the large train stations, covering long spans. Creation of spaces are independent, both public and private sectors, with a logical concept.
Cutting through a broken “barrel vault run”, it gains entry of light that bathes the exposition space inside the building. Here live the locomotives and being introverted values the exhibits. Surrounding this central space the various exhibitions and workshops are part of the museum tour.
The relationship with the west green corridor is given by taking a large windowed double height, which houses the cafeteria function on the mezzanine that “flies out”, giving the best views towards the park. Steel is used as the material for the structure creating unifying element plate horizontal and vertical enclosure.
They differ also materials such as glass and wood. The foundations are of reinforced concrete. The construction system is fast outer shell assembly, thus further then with the work inside.
