The project consists of three separate buildings, one for each of the eras the national museum is to exhibit. The architecture should be representative for the specific historical period the different buildings will showcase.

The pre-Columbian era is represented by a light thatch work structure which interprets a Taino indian hut. The hut can be furnished with hammocks, which is how the Taino´s furnished their huts.


The old school building is restored back to its original state from the 19th century, representing the colonial period. Most important in the restoration are the windows, and the shutters, which are important both for the control of ventilation and light, and for the architectural character of the colonial buildings.

At the very top of the site a new building is placed, inspired by these bygone periods, which can reflect and showcase recent american history on the islands.
