The objective of the project is to create a new architecture that lays on the site in balance with the landscape and the existing Norman castle. A system is established by creating a podium that follows the linearity of the topography and the fort, creating one landscape with the existing. Norman castle and palaces suggested to create a circulation around the main space, with a system of galleries that guide the visitor to the cultural centre. The main structural element is repeated around the perimeter without touching the fort providing natural light to the galleries and enlightening the historical existing artefacts. The roof of the podium is imagined as a water mirror reflecting the sky and the Fort above, as a reinterpretation of the Norman water-garden tradition.
