Tuñón Arquitectos has renovated and extended Museum of Contemporary Art Helga de Alvear in Cáceres, Spain.
The design is based on a strategy where the new and the recognisable can coexist. The plot forms a frontier for the city, both historically, as it is located in the old town's medieval border, and geographically, for it is a natural border of a valley.
The proposal brings back the plot's original trait of a transit piece of land where exchanges between the inside and outside of the city's wall occurred, becoming a permeable urban space again.
This project has been longlisted in the cultural building category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
