The design proposal delivered, provides for the construction of the museum to above the tanks, while maintaining the same size, reconfiguring the spaces and connections it is proposed to integrate, from the point of view of landscape, these two cylinders in reinforced concrete. On one of them was "supported" the volume of the exhibition hall, a square prism which has been reduced by the circular shape of the tank, thus generating the facing on the water left in the center, visible both during the journey of the access ramp to the upper level from both the exhibition hall. The second tank instead has been considered as a circular courtyard excavated, on the whose perimeter take place in the museum of the facilities and laboratories as well as offices and a small library, while in the middle of the court a tree and a few sessions generate a direct view of the sky.
