Spain and Burma
The project for the museum in Burma was born in 2004 from the need to juxtapose the wonderful Plain of Bagan to a structure with multiple purposes:
- helping the tourists, with a museum that could enrich them before the Plain exploratory phase;
- collection of archaeological artifacts received from the area, because until 2004 archaeologists were forced to send the pieces in Rangoon, risking to damage them;
- do archaeological training with some areas dedicated to the university of the burmese archaeology.
The museum location was planned in an area that was beyond Irrawaddy River, so as not to disfigure the Valley landscape while the museum shape took a stylization to recall the pagodas in that area.
The main features of the museum:
- a large sphere within which it develops the outstanding museum and from which to admire the Plain;
- ponds of water, like water mirrors, with the colours of Burmese Rice paddies.
The project of Alicante museum was created as an alternative to one of the museum park facilities.
Simple style, modern but well distributed in the space it made the museum a volume of thousand angles. The interior museum space was particularly suitable for exhibitions of modern and contemporary art with large rooms and free walking.
