The new cultural district includes the complete metamorphosis of a 17th-century convent and the construction of a museum on the cultural inheritance of the 20th century.

The main spatial strategy for the new museum was to create a footpath that traverses the complex diagonally through the restored convent courtyard, and connects it to the urban fabric of the neighborhood.

The Museum of Cultural Inheritance of the 20th century presents two independent volumes – one for offices, the other for exhibitions and institutional spaces – clad in a skin of colorful ceramic pieces.
