Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art (MCCA)

This Project was developed for a "Final project for Graduation" at my university in Brazil in 2012. "This project was a research development, data collection and, project of implantation of a Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art, in the neighborhood of Graça, in the city of Salvador, Bahia -Brazil Graphic art, images, and comics are increasingly being used as tools for dissemination and documentation of information. There is a growing number of people who participate in events and spaces to discuss this art but It has a lack of dedicated space for these events and meetings. The Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art, as an environment of leisure, education, and culture, would support all these needs. Also, It was a project to enable a dynamic environment with activities. The neighborhood of Graça was propitious for the implantation of the object because it already has a concentration of museums and educational buildings. It allows and ensures the circulation of the involved public, besides implanting in this "cultural circuit" a current art proposal, differentiated by the dynamics and interactivity. The methodology of the work was based on the grouping, analysis, and interpretation of concepts. Also, it fallows the local laws. The public demands, climatological data, visits in loco, states of the arts volumetric studies, architectural parties, and structural analysis. It was projected to guarantee a collection of concrete information that justifies the insertion of this object in the deployment area. The results of research, data collection and architectural studies were presented through the project proposal of the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art."
