Located in the Historic Center of Lima, the Site Museum should have a cover that protects the archaeological finds; Thus, EMILIMA asked us to design a tensile structure that aims to be visually attractive and at the same time light and easy to assemble. The design was made up with poles, beams and pointed arches organized in four joined and continuous modules. On each column are born the “V” beams that support the central arches in the alternate axes.
Two membranes were used, both of different translucency, white along the vault and semi-transparent triangular segments on the perimeter, in order to increase the natural luminosity of the environment.
The greatest complexity was that since it is historical heritage and is still under investigation, its intangible areas forced us to rethink some supports, generating discrete modifications to the original project.
