The new Pavilion has two floors and is a straight rectangular parallelepiped-shaped building of reinforced concrete, which will house the Murano glass collection, the cafeteria and more exhibition spaces. Special emphasis is placed on the main exhibit area, which is a white, cubic, isotropic space that will house temporary exhibitions and serve as a focal point of the museum. In that cubic, white and isotropic space, 10x10x10m, at each corner, we made an opening of 2.10x 2.10 x 2.10 x 2.10 so that the sun can enter there at any time of the day.
