This building is the result of a first prize in an open international competition in order to develop two different buildings on one plot. Mixing both programs into a single shape we obtained an strange concrete tree-like shape that contains in its interior the Dance School, and the surrounding space becomes a Museum. Later, this double program was changed and refurbished as National Museum of Science and Technology using the whole area.
That concrete shape, with massive slabs and big girder walls, rests on a metallic structure very atomized, perimetral, that adopts a character of mesh in order that the natural light expresses the weight of the interior volume. The texture of the museum conforms exclusively for printed glass and concrete made with natural wood form. For the ceiling, 1000 acoustical cylinders hide the technical floor while stablish an spatial reference to the whole.
