Memórias da Misericórdia de Braga

  • Memórias da Misericórdia de Braga, Centro Interpretativo, Braga, Portugal.

    Palácio do Raio, with its late-Baroque or Rococo style, is one of the urban buildings which residents of Braga and Portugal at large value most, and due to its history, it is associated with social welfare.

    As we see it, our role is to design items, mechanisms and services which mediate culturally between the memories of the Misericórdia and visitors to this emblematic building. For this reason, we also wanted to evoke the Baroque style in the exhibition. 
    We therefore decided to build large, irregular-shaped, clear glass boxes, preserving the objects contained within from lying forgotten in the shadows or being destroyed by time.
