The project of the MUDE - Fashion and Design Museum provisional installation consisted on an intervention in the former Ultramarine National Bank at Lisbon downtown. The scope of the intervention was developed in two levels (ground floor and 1st floor) both destined to expository areas, a bookstore and a cafeteria.
The challenge in this project was to provide the space with the required infrastructures to operate the museum without touching the existing structure and without the use of building walls or coatings to cover the installations.
The artificial lighting seizes some of the constructed elements and invests in the immateriality of the light to enhance the presence of the reinforced concrete structure, particularly the pieces of the collection.
