The building must be a memorial, which is to say that it must have a commemorative architecture, which gives form to the intention of the contents. Therefore, the monumentality of the Museum has to be different from those conventionally celebrated: here it is about respect, plurality and diversity, of remembrance, criticism and creation: "a daily encounter with the unspeakable" (Barry Bergdoll).

The internal space of the NMM and the external space of theDemocracySquareformacontinuumofexpressionof knowledge, grief, resistance, creativity and resilience with respect to violence demonstrated by all of the Colombian population from all the different regions. In this sense, the space of the Museum is a spatial synthesis of the diverse sites of memory built in the different locations where violations of human rights are commented upon.
