This building is from 1968, and it´s a jump from the traditional museum idea of a closed building with exhibition rooms, into an open-plan flexible space.

The building is 64.8m long, with only 2 steel columns on each side, which free the corners giving the building a lightweight look.

A very "Mies" building, with a clear and radical idea put on a very minimal, yet detailed structure.
