MUSAC Contemporary Art Museum of Castilla y León

The Contemporary Art Museum of Castilla y León (MUSAC) is located in León (Spain). It is a set of autonomous, interconnected exhibition rooms enables exhibitions of different types and sizes to be created; each irregularly shaped room constructs a continuous, yet spatially separated space which flows into other rooms and patios, providing longitudinal, transversal and diagonal vistas.

500 Prefabricated beams close off a series of spaces characterized by systematic repetition and formal expressiveness. Outside, the concave shaped public space accommodates different activities; a place surrounded by huge colored panels of glass and acts a place of personal intercommunication.

Inside, a great expanse of continuous, yet distinctive, spaces dotted with patios and large skylights gives rise to “an expressive system that communicates the interests art and architecture share: the contemporary manifestation of the variable and the perennial, the different and the same, the universal and the transitory, as an echo of our own diversity and equality as individuals.”
