002 LERIDA

Science Museum for "la Caixa" Foundation in Lerida, Spain.

2012
Located adjacent to the perimeter of the actual city limits the site is identified by its extreme topography and its spectacular view across the city to the medieval walled citadel that so represent the city of Lerida. Our architectural intervention translates these two aspects into a specific form. The building is at the same time a mirador, a public space, a connector and museum.

The design evolves from an analysis of the surrounding context creating both a direct urban relationship with the historic city backdrop and the immediate residential surrounding. The building posses a strong presence where acting as a highly visible landmark, avoiding falling into formal gestures, and becoming a destination.
