The Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art

Filipa Figueira Arquitectura as Architects

The Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art is the element which makes the passage between the Real World and the Dream World, where the Super Heroes live. When we think about the cartoon the 1ª idea are the comic strips, where the story is told, they are only glances of the story. So we try to pass that image to the project, the boxes (comic strips) containing the functions (imagination), giving the idea that the building is a comic book. The inner space is the world of super heroes, where everything seems to come from another world, things that grow from the floor, ceiling or walls, the lecture hall and theater are a speech balloon, which seems to be smashed by the rest of the building but resist without an apparent explanation. The comics are the “sequential art” so all the building is a sequence of spaces but almost all the time we can see other spaces like our memory of the previous strips when we read a cartoon.
