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.”

OmasC arquitectos designed a functional and bright house, ideal for families, nearby the sea, on the Northern Coast of Spain. Marking the boundaries between public and private, a large wooden gate serves as an entrance. A narrow paved alley meanders through the green courtyard and then it stops. You’re at the entrance. As your steps wriggle on the alley and search for imposing details, the house raises on a small plot of land, luring you to step inside. The architects played with volumes and different angles and eventually completed a residence that houses a kitchen, a living room and a dining room on the ground floor and three bedrooms on the first floor.

The inside is welcoming, as expected. The wide windows adorned with translucent blinds surprise with their omnipresence. Each room is flooded by the natural light, creating through such a simple detail, an optimistic and luminous space.

Skatepark, Concert area, broadband Internet, Modding, Tuning, Modeling, Graffiti, Urban Art, Street Theatre, tightrope walking, circus activities, Video Art, Electronic Music, Acrobatics, Performing Arts, Manga, Parkour, Audiovisual Art, Contemporary Dance, Dance Funk and Hip Hop, Ballroom and MACC (contemporary artistic body manifestations) are the activities that compose the Factory, situated in Mérida (Badajoz).

The building is conceived as a large canopy opened to the whole city to gather anyone who may need to shelter there. This canopy is supported by a series of ovoid plant parts holding different elements of the requested functions, which are treated as independent modules able to be used separately with whole autonomy, regulated and controlled by the direction of the Factory movement. The activities taking place below are covered from rain and sun by the big canopy, acting like a big termical one meter thick cushion, so that there will be no need to use air conditioning.

The roof is understood, and extends, like a light cloud, protective, translucent; constructed with a three-dimensional mesh structure 1 meter thick covering different levels. This canopy will rest on steel columns placed in the perimeter of the supporting ovoid elements up to the highest level, where it joins the Climbing Walls structure made with the same three-dimensional mesh. The whole proposal stands on a basement five feet tall so that the sensitive historical Roman base of the city of Mérida remains untouched.
