MALI Contemporary Art Wing Addition

Status: Competition Entry Program: Contemporary Art Museum Square Meter: aprx. 6,000sm Location:   Lima, Peru

The new design of the contemporary art wing should provide a social landmark, a place for civic engagement and a new kind of public space. The gallery programs are lifted up to provide a public plaza while the library and education programs are buried into the ground. A series of sunken courtyards provide day light to underground spaces while a saw tooth roof facing north provides indirect light to galleries.
