The Museum Castle Freudenstein, designed by AFF Architekten, is the result of the conversion of an ancient castle located in the town of Freiberg, Germany.
Last month they finally inaugurated CaixaForum Madrid. The building, an old Central Electric located in the heart of Madrid near the green wall of Patrick Blanc, has been designed by Herzog & de Meuron. The intervention will increase the new social and cultural center from 2.000 to 8.000 square meters spread over seven levels.
They have designed a breathtaking facility that will feature beautifully proportioned galleries, a theater, an education floor, a New Museum Store, a café, a top floor event space with roof terraces, and more.
Clad in a silvery, anodized expanded aluminum mesh and punctuated by windows and skylights, the building’s form was conceived to express the ever-changing dynamic of the art and ideas to be presented within.
