Portuguese Language Museum Proposal
April 2017 – (…)
Cariatides; Miguel Palmeiro Design
Plastic & figurative design approach
The design of the new Museum of the Portuguese Language bets on a “fugurative argument”, in a “plastic idea” that expresses the concept of “new museum”. The pre-existing structure of industrial silos, we propose the top of the top with a translucid volume and in the basement, in the connection with the public space we propose the integration of a great new horizontal volume that breaks down the compositional verticality of the silos, while allowing simultaneously allocate permanent exposures and mark the main entrance of the building.
