ETHNURBANISM VISION The Museum of Ethnography is conceived as a dynamic and interactive series of urban spaces which enable visitors and staff to interact for the purpose of further understanding urban human behaviours. Similar to Bartok’s musical study of human cultures (Ethnomusicology), The Museum of Ethnography is designed as a series of Urban Spaces (steps as amphitheatre, piazzas, interiors as urban streets, etc.) where visitors encounter and meet. It is an active “device” for interactive social relationships and the study of human behaviours. ARCHITECTURAL CONCEPT The building is an iconic urban presence, which invites visitors to explore both its spaces as well as its contents. It is both a social public space and a curatorial guided tour of Ethnographical History. SITE RELATIONS Sitting on an important urban crossroad it opens its corners to connect to the surrounding through vistas and revealing its internal program and life. The building takes clues from Monuments around the city, citing their materials and volumetric complexity, yet it adapts to a modern, sustainable and public facility that can be both viewed as well as explored inside.
