Museum. México City. 2007
The challenge of this visionary project is that it will become the first Art Museum in Mexico city with such an avant garde form, breaking by this with all the paradigms in our country. It will also create a state-of-the-art facility to house and display artwork that meets the standard of International Art Institutions. There will be an auditorium, library, offices, a restaurant and gathering lounge. Intermediate levels are open to each other in a continuous volume, but partially separated by enclosed areas, making all spaces unique in their shape and form. The average floor to ceiling height also varies at each level, from 4 meters to nearly 10 meters at its highest point. The subterranean structure will have four underground levels of parking below two underground levels of sto-rage and restoration labs. The work to be exposed contains amongst others, the second biggest collection of Rodin sculptures in the world, several authors of medieval and renaissance art, impressionist painters, etc.
