Extension, refurbishment and remodelling of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum

BOPBAA. Josep Bohigas, Francesc Pla e Iñaki Baquero, con Manuel Baquero, Robert Brufau y Àlex Sangenis


The intervention suggests a profoundly respectful though dialectic relationship with the construction that has in the past housed the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza art collection on an exclusive basis. The volumetric definition of the extended complex represented, even beforehand, the resolution of the problem of how to conserve the buildings acquired for the planned extension and the contradiction between their dimensional and typological parameters with the new uses it was going to be put to. Moreover, the route of the visit links up and completes the proposal for the palace of Villahermosa, while the new spaces destined for the display of the art fund interpret those of that historic building.
