Real Madrid ́s Museum & Arts Centre
Located by the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in the main avenue of Madrid.
The new building aims to enhance the most scenographic character of the Bernabeu establishing a dialog between scales and materiality.
In opposition to the static and rotund character of the stadium, the Museum presents a changing form and scale, and a technologic and dynamic facade that generates electricity for the building.
La Castellana avenue is the main axis of Madrid, where most of the principal landmarks are located. Real Madrid’s stadium is located in the northern half.
Today it is the only building of interest in the area, and visitors must travel only to see the stadium.
The project aims to revitalize the north of Madrid with a new center of cultural, sport and architectural interest.
The incomplete vision of the facade of the stadium maximizes its scenery character and its dimension.
The building system has been designed in order to present a right livel of flexibility allowing occasionally future spacial changes without loosing its essence either in the interior an exterior of the building.
Kevin lynch explains that usually we don’t have complete visuals of urban land- marks, the buildings in the cities they suggest them only partially. What makes them more attractive to people.Those same urban and visual relationships are sought to maximize the perception of the stadium and the new building, creating a dialogue between two opposing but complementary elements.
Art centre, restaurant & Real Madrid ́s Museum are located in the lower part of the building.Production areas are situated in the north wing. Residences for artists are in the private part of the building, consisting in a tower that becomes a new landmark for the city.
