Text description provided by the architects. The m.a.x. Museo

The forceful and clear structure, with his illuminated facade, requalifies the entire Chiasso town area dedicated to culture, creating a new place.
The museum is characterized by a substantial equivalence of structure and space. Exhibition spaces are kept simple and minimal, pervaded with diffuse natural light, to exalt the contents.
