Description Change this

The contemporary city extends to the interior of the building in a horizontal layer, recreating part of the land disappeared, interposing between the cover and the ground, like an amazing vantage point of a specular effect. This area is recovered in the field of public transit, the meetings, the beginning of the visits, the wandering, the exhibitions, the café, bookstore or simple crossing without stopping. The way to understand, therefore, will always be linked to this condition almost urban. This dependency with the public is a way of linking the interior to follow that urban but also how to make explicit what has been designed recently. The language of the new elements that colonize these trays is preceded by the complicity of the street. To put it another way, the new interference in its references are elements that are familiar. Furthermore the concentration of the innovations in this new level: lobby, gazebo, new exhibition spaces and services has made it possible to see how the site intact. Partly because the archaeological already interfered enough. The stark foundations, concrete screens, the drains or the same structures of this new attic extemporizes unexpected actions are very powerful. And although the presence of some of these elements are part of a narrative that does not renounce to incorporate museum is also true that the site is already full.
