A museum should empower the evocative capacity of the memory. In this purpose, the museum is a sum of parts where each has its own value and its own characteristics.

The museum becomes a platform to make visible what was invisible until now.

Suitability of the site

The new museum is defined by its urban boundaries. The spaces generated by expanding the building recall to the historical plot. Through regular geometries and interstitial spaces, the historic squares, corners and alley are redefined.

Program
The program needs are solved through the use of “articulators” that give an identity to the museum. They become a recognized element that answers to the representative and symbolic needs of the institution.The new exposition rooms are designed as “modern cloisters”. Throughthe light flux work, the spatial continuity is guaranteed. The alabaster front plates and the trusses limestone recreatea Romanesque space.

The Archaeological Museum of Oviedo, in conclusion, explores the links between contemporary and vernacular architecture as a chance to rebuild time and memory with a contemporary architectural language. The museum thus becomes a projection of time, not only physical but also emotional.
