Design Challenge
To transform the Military Fortress of Capo d’Orso into a museum of the military, marine and navigation history.. Renewed by culture and new architectures, the fortress of Capo d’Orso will no longer serve the logic of violence. It will rather enrich the contemporary society by giving the world one of the most fascinating museums of Europe. This museum will be set among the rocks of wild nature and located in one of the most majestic landscapes of the Mediterranean.
