A museum without form, open and free, colorful and complex, like the imagination. Superposition of spaces, chromatic saturation, intensity of sunlight, absence of borders. Vegetation that creeps, rises, climbs, hangs. Diverse materials, textures and temperatures. Continuously open spaces. A forest crowning the landscape.

The museum project conceptualizes an educational space in a playful and recreational way while mitigating the lack of immediate public space by inserting a 13,000m² tree-lined public square.
