For the clarity and strength of the proposal; the relationship between the new elements, the existing walls and the surrounding context; for the integration between architecture and landscape transforming them into a unique experience, seeking to respect the heritage. Equally, for the quality of interior atmospheres, the articulation of open and compressed spaces, allowing to gently move from one space to another, guided by natural light and matter.

All remaining competition entries
This international one-stage architecture competition invited architecture students and young architects (≤ 40 years old) to develop and submit compelling ideas for the design of a contemporary Site Museum located within the Castle at Montemor-o-Novo in Portugal. The Castle of Montemor-o-Novo is a significant landmark on a prominent landscape, a place of great cultural heritage and historical significance with characteristics that must be fully preserved. When generating a vision for an intervention located within such a remarkable place, it is essential that each proposal emphasizes, respects and celebrates the site and existing ruins within this spectacular landscape, providing visitors a unique experience.
