Museo Picasso Malaga by Gluckman Mayner Architects

Museo-Picasso-Malaga1

The museum, designed by Gluckman Mayner Architects, is located in the historic city center of Malaga, Spain, birthplace of Pablo Picasso.

A 16th century palace was fully restored to house the Main Entry and Permanent Collection galleries. Six new buildings were carefully inserted into the urban fabric to house the ambitious program. A large building, containing the Special Exhibition galleries, and a series of smaller buildings, containing ancillary program, create the boundaries of a new public plaza.

The new structures respect the scale, texture and articulation of the existing built context, while their simple geometric forms, rendered in white plaster, clearly announce a sympathetic modern intervention.
