Soumaya Museum in Mexico City, Mexico by FR-EE – Fernando Romero Enterprise

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

Article source: FR-EE – Fernando Romero Enterprise

Museum buildings tend to be conceived either for maximum functionality – acting as neutral containers for art – or as iconic structures that represent a city at a particular historic moment. The Museo Soumaya was designed as both: a sculptural building that is unique and contemporary, yet one able to house a collection of international paintings, sculptures, and decorative objects dating from the fourteenth century to the present.

MADU in Mexico City, Mexico by FREE – Fernando Romero EnterprisE

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Article source: FREE

MADU is a small museum for a collection of Art, Design and Urbanism. Like it’s content the building becomes an object by itself. Based on a deformed sphere, the shape is autonomous and will co-exist harmoniously with it’s surroundings. The content of the exhibition are in it’s majority small objects and require small rooms in specific groups. In order to have an integrated solution for program structure and circulation, a single wavy slab is disposed in an helicoidal way so it becomes stable without the need for columns or beams and allowing a diversity in circulation that makes a free fluid experience to it’s visitors.
