Project Second classified.
The project aims through a sign of strong characterization of the Territorial define a place of great value identity capable, because of its symbolic value and quality and flexibility of the space that is to draw, and can be modified to accommodate different functions in time. The new museum is simultaneously a sign of the scale of the territory, as a big land-mark along the line of the coast of Cagliari, a volume of concave and convex at the same time that through the His shadow cast on the ground defines a physical space in which precise settle many activities, and is still an element of crossing, on which one can stand for a few minutes, from which observe the landscape or where to stop for a more thorough visit. So there are no specific features that give identity value in this new complex, but it is the shape of the place, the spaces that this project suggests that offer endless employment opportunities and Use: It is not recognizable building a museum, nor a laboratory building,
nor let alone a regional information center; is the system as a whole to function as a medium isotropic capable of modifying suggesting alternative ways of enjoyment. Settling in a “marginal” from the urban point of view, as full of conflicting signs and conditions of employment of the soil varied, from sports stadium to social housing, the port channel dedicated to fishing, it means facing a radical choice of selection of
the territory itself. The coast line, the boundary between sea and land becomes the track along which all play relations established between object and context, including sign, of course, and territory. The museum embodies and amplifies this double velenza opening and closing towards the countryside, opacity and permeability, continuity with the sequences urban and intimacy of places collected and thoughtful, settling at the turn of the coastline and dilating or contracting toward the sea or toward the inside depending on the needs of management and use of the building itself.
