MACBA: Contemporary Art Museum of Barcelona

MACBA: Contemporary Art Museum of Barcelona, is meant to be "a purveyor of different services for different subjects" instead of a "mere producer of exhibitions" according to their own definition. The building by Richard Mier was inaugurated in 1995. The American architect plays with the use of light in creating spaces. See another Macba photo here where part of the façade is detached from the main building to let the light flow inside. There are some cozy terraces to sit in the sun at least at this time of the year. The big squares surrounding the museum are a good place to relax and read, although depending on the amount of skateboarders that think modern esplanades and walls are the ideal place to practice.

  2. Great job to show the museum's architecture. I think the buildings themselves should reflect in a sophisticated way what's inside, but not all art museums do that; this one does.
