The Museum building, cladded in corrugated aluminium sheeting, appears dark in the landscape. Its image constantly shifting from black to silver, depending on the viewing angle. The interior is an essay on light, captured in the inner courtyard and distributed from there to spaces arranged around it, becoming progressively less intense. The controlled lighting, specific to the different exhibition spaces, uses tubular luminaires, suspended both horizontally and vertically as suits in each case.
