“In Natura Veritas” by AGi architects, the international design firm founded in 2006 by Joaquín Pérez-Goicoechea MArch ’02 and Nasser B. Abulhasan MArch ’02, DDesS ’07, has been selected for the renovation and muesalization of 18 Galician-Roman sites in Pontevedra, Galicia, Spain.

The proposal takes as its starting point the intrinsic nature of this place: the creation of a space for the preservation of memory in a natural environment chosen as a living place hundreds of years ago. As a natural museum, it recreates the memory of landscape through the maintenance, consolidation and recovery of the lost native vegetation.

 An abstract system composed of different layers is established with the intention of transferring ad hoc knowledge for each of the sites, integrating them into a unique network for the interpretation of the Galician archaeological landscape.
