The Building of the Museum of Art and Archaeology of the Coa Valley, consisting of two bodies, one with a substantially rectangular shape in plan dimensions 40m x 55m with two floors, with an expected inter-floor much of the area of deployment and the other, with plan dimensions 55m x 50m approximately U-shaped, comprising two levels above the ground on the lateral wings, the wing having South only the upper deck which was suspended from the side wings.
The solution was rectangular body of a chain structure in reinforced concrete slabs relaxed by means of molds recoverable reinforced concrete supported on columns, walls and concrete wall, forming a rectangular grid of average dimensions of 7 x 8 m.
In the body U-emphasize that the lateral wings of about 13 m wide concrete reinforced, tubular supported on pillars. The south wing also in tubular form had no support pillars, and thus supported by the beams of the side wings extended cantilever (prestrained) about 8m. This wing won within a span of about 33m between supports.
Acoustically, aspired to be a predominantly deaf space, which privilege the absorption rather than reflection that easily become unpleasant to those present in the exhibition area. This would naturally sound profile achieved with fixed elements, integrated architecture. The leisure facilities, the desired versatility, were seen as versatile rooms whose versatility should be assured by an acoustic variable. The versatility acoustics, it would translate into removable components, a pair of wireline solutions.
