Text description provided by the architects. A former warehouse occupies the heart of a housing block in the centre of Bilbao. The access leads through a tunnel that crosses the residential grid. Around a grand central exhibition hall that forms the heart of the program the auxiliary spaces like storage, administration, artwork handling, meeting room, experimentation and services are distributed.

The architecture leans on few materials – the fair faced concrete structure, continuous industrial floors, White walls levitating over recessed skirtings, a few pieces of furniture – to build the elemental ingredients of an exhibition space –floors, walls and ceilings- leaving it to the artworks to define it.

Both natural and artificial light build the space, both rigorously adapted to each exhibition and the scenographic argument responsible for the specific personality of the project.

Lines of fluorescent light, the reinterpretation of the original system of skylights that are building a new industrial landscape on the roof, are enlacing the past with the future of a surprising place.
