Contemporary art is ruthless and merciless, and doesn’t look like whatever the classics were doing a century and even two centuries ago. Apparently, with this statement agrees the Peruvian architects of the studio “51-1 Arquitectos”, which together with the Colombian studio “Ctrl G” have designed a building for Modern Art Museum, similar to a pile of boxes stacked on each other. And they won a design competition, so soon in Medellin (Colombia) appears unusual “box” building of the museum.
Innovative building of Modern Art Museum
Thanks to the “boxed” structure, this project involves the presence of several convenient terraces in addition to the basic blocks Corps Museum. It may be open areas for demonstration installations and sculptures, displays and presentations, and even become “summer” cafeterias.
At the brick “blocks” will be located showrooms, administrative rooms, restaurant, conference hall and a hall for a video demonstration, a library and other basic premises of the Modern Art Museum.
The main problem of Medellin is that it is a small city and its cultural space is limited to the city park, and thereby the museum, which is located in an industrial area. Therefore the main task of the architects was to design not just a modern building for a modern museum, but also diversify the architecture of the area, make it fun and interesting.
