rabaçal archeological complex
penela, portugal
2019 - competition, 6th
structures and engeneering - Guilherme Prata Ribeiro
the aim of the competition was to conceive an archeological complex for the roman villa of Rabaçal, near Penela. The intention was to design any contemporary structures as far as possible, not to disturb a feeling of a past experience. 
the covering for the roman villa tend to interprete its boundaries, and also to protect from rains, winds, and excessive sun exposure. it would be a wooden perimetral structure, with pink-dyed plywood panels. 
on the other hand, the museum would be a pink concrete volume, with an horizontal - shaped museum contrasting with a tower, offering views from the cafeteria.
