The interior of the museum, which we would like to introduce you to, was created using rather unusual structures and materials. We are talking about the Center Pompidou in Malaga, the first branch of the famous Parisian art center, located outside of France.
The institution is located on the territory of the city port, and this circumstance prompted the authors of the project to make a choice in favor of industrial materials. In addition, they applied an original technique for decorating the facade, which allows them to convey the pattern of punched cards, once developed by the French inventor Joseph Marie Jaccard.
At the same time, designers have relied on decontextualization as a means of assessing an isolated object and its integration into various environments. It allows you to connect the past and the present, to provide an interdisciplinary exchange of experience and knowledge. This connection encourages curiosity and communication, even on an intuitive level.
The layout of the center ensures the continuity of space, following one zone after another. Visitors plunge into it gradually, moving from a noisy and lively environment to areas that stimulate cognition in all possible ways for a person.
This idea is embodied through space fragmentation and visual delineation. To get to the next exposition, visitors pass a semi-closed room that acts as a filter and allows them to perceive what they see with a “pure mind”.
The gallery is located on two levels. The first brings together various public areas such as a café, a shop, a locker room and halls for young visitors and temporary exhibitions. On the second level, the museum’s own collections are exhibited.
The levels are connected by two adjacent spaces. Firstly, it is a ramp crossing, a kind of continuation of the public area.
The second space is a wooden staircase, wide and no less impressive than the gallery itself. At the Center Pompidou in Malaga, in addition to the main hall with three rooms for permanent exhibitions, there is a temporary exhibition pavilion and a workshop for students.
Visitors can use the underground parking with a separate entrance and dine in a cozy cafe without leaving the walls of the building.
With the opening of this art space, Malaga has established itself as one of the cultural capitals of Europe and has become an even more desirable place to visit for millions of tourists from all over the world. Would you like to visit the new Center Pompidou?
