Museum in the Shell of Time

    Ethnographic Museum

    2003

    Rabo-de-Peixe, Azores

A small ethnographic museum to be established on the terrace of a very small chapel on a hill overlooking the fishing town and bay of Rabo de Peixe, São Miguel.

The main objective for the proposal is to contain several collections of miniatures of fishing boats and tools traditionally used by fishermen of the island. It should incorporate as well the tools used in crops and animal treatment during the off-fishing season. The museum peeks out from beneath the church, blending in with the vast see sight of the bay and harbor.
