The project is composed of four elements that make up a sculpture of irregular geometry, entirely covered by copper pre-oxidized that sends back streaks of green and blue. The elements are connected to each other through the internal levels. They develop across and lay on a transparent case that looks at the city. The Museum and Educational Centre include: a cafe, a shop, two auditoriums of different sizes (between 500 and 800 seats) designed as parallelepiped made of red wood and three winter gardens with a sliding roof, several conference / auditorium rooms, the Science and Technology Center with support services, exhibition halls, science / art gallery, exhibition area of the Museum’s collection, exhibition Maths, cinema / auditorium, several laboratories, a library, a workshop, the exhibition area of the Science and Technology Museum Center.
