  • Avant-garde architecture with structural steel rusty in contrast with mirrors and colorful objects. Is a contemporary retelling of the neighbouring buildings.

  • I never understood why this building is in the square, with an architecture that is so different from the rest of it. He's in reform for years, and never ends.

  • When it comes to a Museum of the theme, nothing more natural than having one ore at the entrance. But what surprised me was the size of giant quartz found in the input.
