Camilo Rebelo: Museum of Art and Archaeology of the Côa Valley

Camilo Rebelo + Tiago Pimentel/Sandra Barbosa imagined this museum of and with history, both past and present, in Vila Nova de Foz Côa, Portugal.  

The Palaeolithic art in the Coa Valley is perhaps man’s first land art manifestation.

The Museum is conceived as an installation in the landscape.

The monolithic triangular form is a direct result of the valley’s confluences.

Its materiality evokes the local stone yards and reflects two different natures: the concrete’s matter, and the local stone’s texture and colour.
