Paracas Museum
Location: Paracas, Peru
Opening to the public: 2016

An archaeological museum must find the delicate balance between heritage conservation exposed and release to the public. A site museum, as the Paracas, acquires the additional challenge of having to integrate into the landscape that was the cradle of this culture, which is now part of the most important biological and landscaping reserve of the Peruvian coastal desert.

Damião de Góis Museum
Location: Alenquer, Portugal
Status: Completed in 2017

 

Intervening in an existing building is in itself a good challenge, when we have added centuries of history to the pre-existence, the challenge is even greater. The intervention focuses on the creation of an exhibition structure, alluding to the life and historical legacy of Damião de Gois, inside an old, restored church in Alenquer.
