The new contemporary art wing of the Lima Museum includes the construction of a new building on the south part of the Palácio de Exposiciónes. The addition will hosts an exposition gallery, a library and some classrooms for workshop and will have to establish a relation with the new museum square and the city garden.
The visible part of the building articulates the relation between the city and the museum by a new entry for the garden, which will have a proportion related with the dimension of the road and of the nearby buildings.
The tower – a kind of totem – hosts the classrooms.
The main hall, the cafeteria and the library of the museum are on the ground floor which will be open to the garden. The exposition gallery and the technical spaces of the museum are located below the new museum square.
