It is 25 meters in height and it which is lower than the Alte Pinakothek, the oldest museum, to restraint this gallery and ¿verb missing? the history of the city. This restraint to the history, museums and architecture make the  means that this building was generated from the most classical to the most contemporary forms.


The main hall is situated in the centre of the plan and it is a circular space with an enormous skylight a space that soars and is flooded with light that allows the input of the light. The access to this hall is by a diagonal entering in the rectangular plan and it cross all the building with open edges.
  

The museum can be read like an encyclopedia of architecture where all spatial and composite elements follow an internal and consistent logic. The new building has four floors and large glazed panels run around the entire building alloing light to stream in from all directions. the light enter by all possible ways.

  1. Pablo, this is a nice building and you describe it well and the images complement what you have written. I do feel however that your description describes too much of the history of the building a little about the context and not so much the actual architecture.

    I don't notice too much language from the seminar, most sentences have the feeling they mean more in Spanish. Perhaps you should add three sentences at the end - just copying sentences you like from the seminar.
