Igatu Museum Building
From the strangeness of the overturned boulders of the Vila de Igatu come our reference and concept for a Museum that will be constructed at the entrance of the Igatu Historic Park.
This project seeks to rescue and re-invent the history of the Igatu Park: the ascension and passing of the activity of prospecting and mining diamonds, its role as a place that continues to offer delight to many adventurers, the decadence and silence that is simultaneously haunting and magical.
It will not be simply a museum but a living center where the traces and customs of those who lived and still live will be demonstrated- the local culture, the oral transmission of history, the organization of day to day life, the prolific dialogue with exuberant nature on all sides, the food made of simple means, scenes and creations that look to the future. And, above all, a center of coexistence of residents, visitors, and tourists: the coexistence of different pasts and futures, in the objects, the shards of memory, in the gravel, coexistence of rock and water; of natural stones and constructed stones – concrete.
