In Natura Veritas project, by the international design firm AGi architects, has been selected for the renovation and muesalization of 18 Galician-Roman sites in Pontevedra, Galicia, Spain.
The proposal takes as its starting point the intrinsic nature of this place: the creation of a space for the preservation of memory in a natural environment chosen as a living place hundreds of years ago. As a natural museum, it recreates the memory of landscape through the maintenance, consolidation and recovery of the lost native vegetation. An abstract system composed of different layers is established with the intention of transferring ad hoc knowledge for each of the sites, integrating them into a unique network for the interpretation of the Galician archaeological landscape.
According to the Jury’s decision, In Natura Veritas by AGi architects is a “respectful proposal with existing buildings and brings scenic and friendly quality to the visit to the castros through an integral vision of the context. The combination of the layers: sound, lighting, vegetation, paths and soils generates an integral experience of the space that will make the visit memorable without entering into competition with the archaeological elements. The proposed system of pikes is of great versatility constituting a very appropirate museographic support “. Source and images Courtesy of AGi architects.
