From the architect. The successful architectural rehabilitation and expansion project for the historical San Telmo Museum by Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos emphasizes its connection with society both artistically and historically.

Recognized internationally for recovering the original building to make it a contemporary work, the architects made it possible for the museum to reopen by providing a museum as well as a place to spread knowledge and create thought.

Also designed for the new museum is its extension with a new wing, under Mount Urgull along the seashore, intended to house the new cultural and commercial uses along with optimize accessibility for the public and the collections.

The visual impact of the modern construction has been minimized thanks to the architects being able to work closely with artists Leopoldo Ferrán and Agustina Otero who have created a semi-plant wall covering the building with perforated steel sheets.

I don't get it? is it meant for growing loads of plants in the holes to cover the entire surface of the unsightly concrete exterior? if so, it will only look awesome in about 5 years time or something once all the plants have grown and covered it. if not, then it will always look like a concrete eating worm has attacked it!

I don&#39t understand how my brain can love the precision in this but I lack such attention to detail: http://t.co/MearPvNe

Wraps nicely between the existing building and the landscape. Simple and beautiful.

An old... ahhh 2012 and you cannot edit posts...

Martin Hedin · February 18, 2012

It looks good. I am not a fan of the texture though, a bit arbitrary, or it is maybe me not knowing what it represents. I would like to see something more than just images though. I old boring professor told me in second year that "architecture is more than just images".
