The new building of MIS - Museu da Imagem e do Som - is located at the environs of Palácio da Abolição, establishing with it a relation of respect, not only the scale but also the design of the new object and its relation with the urban space.


The location at the land’s boundary enables to liberate the outer area of the urban front, allowing the definition of a frontal square that formally results like an extended carpet that rises to define a big vertical element and that establishes a continuous surface between “stage” and “screen”. An outer covered space marks the separation between the horizontal and the vertical elements. This option allows to create a kind of scenery for the urban space, bringing to us the image of the amphitheatres. It is the image of the building.
