Lumiartecnia and Tenergy were awarded with the second price in the public contest to renovate the Canal de Castilla building in Palencia, into a water museum about this historical place. An outdoor digital water curtain, falling into the canal de Castilla, displayed the information about the museum. A second water curtain was placed inside the museum, with an original ‘S’ shape to divide the space into a spiral circuit, showing videos displayed in the water curtain while the visitors interact with the space.
