Extension of the Reina Sofía Museum

Ateliers Jean Nouvel


The extension consists of three new buildings, linked up and brought together under the spectacular awning that shelters them. The Library and the Documentation Centre enjoy the necessary physical autonomy that will favour study and research in suitable conditions. The two new Temporary Exhibition Rooms, directly connected with the primitive museum, shape a zone in which access and circulation are more fluid, easy and direct. The two Auditoriums open the museum to multidisciplinary activities, in keeping with the expectations of knowledge and artistic experience of contemporary society. The extension is situated within the district with a clear vocation to transform the urban surroundings. The creation of a public square, which arises from the development of the new buildings and the southwest façade of the current Museum, thus becomes a space with a clearly urban vocation.
