Today's archidose #702

Here are some photos of the MAAVC - Museum of Art and Archaeology of the Côa Valley (2009) in Vila Nova de Foz Côa, Portugal, by Camilo Rebelo and Tiago Pimentell/Sandra Barbosa, photographed by José Carlos Melo Dias.

Museu do Côa. Camilo Rebelo + Tiago Pimentel

The architect's description:
The Palaeolithic art in the Coa Valley is perhaps man’s first land art manifestation. The Museum is conceived as an installation in the landscape. The monolithic triangular form is a direct result of the valley’s confluences. Its materiality evokes the local stone yards and reflects two different natures: the concrete’s matter, and the local stone’s texture and colour.
