The Museum of Andalucían Autonomy is situated in a large public garden. Located at one of the boundaries of the triangular plot, it is, in fact, the first point of contact for visitors to the cultural complex.being built in different stages, appears like a white fortress
Appearing like a white fortress, the museum and research centre are united in a single volume despite being built in different stages. Hermetic from a frontal reading only the two separate entrances are visible in the white exposed concrete facade.The building itself solves the different topographic levels existing in the site. The walls facing the interior garden are under the ground, so that vegetation covers some parts of it becoming a roof garden.
courtyard-patios arranged along these walls provide light and ventilation to most of spaces below ground level. Around these patios the activities of both museum and research centre take place.
The structure consists of horizontal concrete slabs supported by load bearing reinforced concrete walls. Vertical timber slats were used for the shuttering in order to get a rough-texture with decorative qualities. The use of white textured concrete has a unifying function for the different programmatic elements.
