The Pavlov Archaeological Park is located on the outskirts of the wine village of Pavlov. The building was built on land with findings of a habitat of mammoth hunters. An exposition “IN SITU” with findings of skeletal remains of mammoths is directly incorporated in the building of the museum. The entire works were adapted during the execution according to the important archaeological findings.

The object is predominantly single-storey with a built-in gallery with a complicated floor plan shape from which monolithic towers rise. Entrances to the building are treated as cuts into the modified terrain while the partition is secured by reinforced concrete walls made of white concrete. The bottom structure is made of waterproof concrete with a sealing crystallisation additive with antiradon function. The walls are double-sided formworks with an interior surface of béton brut with the impression of unplaned planks. At the main entrance, there are prefabricated reinforced concrete walls designed and made of white concrete with holes reminding of mammoth tusks which are interconnected with the construction of the ceiling and the walls. The roof of the building is designed as a single-layer building and since the object will copy the terrain, a vegetation composition was chosen, planted with herbs typical of the Pálava Protected Landscape Area.
