The project series documents an open competition. Abalos & Herreros, in collaboration with Queca Ortiz and Empty, S.L., won second place for their design. The firm identified this project as number 115.
The intention of their entry was to “[…] answer to the task with an authentic installation, a mellowed and independent equipment independent of the container, which absolutely never provokes a conflict or pretends to improve it, which accepts the value of its configuration and extracts the maximum possibilities of the spatial qualities that the intervention has pretended to enhance. Therefore, it is pretended to develop a program which adds an offer of pedagogic-cultural piece of the town to the basic spaces of the museum. The challenge is to make people live together with the scientific aspects, which interests the cultivated popular-pedagogy visitor, connoisseurs of, and which acts with the intention of excinting, surprising and attracting attention of a mostly youthful and infantile audience. […] The museum’s basic program is completed with temporary exhibition halls, library, lecture room and didactic workshops, assembly hall, café, gift shop and offices.” (ARCH270975)
